Doongaji Selected Plays collects the finest plays of award-winning playwright Cyrus Mistry. Doongaji House won the Sultan Padamsee Award for Playwriting in 1978 and depicts the travails of a Parsi family living in a crumbling old mansion in Mumbai. The Legacy of Rage is a coruscating look at a dysfunctional East Indian family squabbling over their inheritance and the sweeping changes in society that have brought them to the edge of penury. A Flowering of Disorder, a play that is being published for the first time, is also set in Mumbai and goes deep into the problems, both farcical and profound, of a middle-class family attempting to cope with the challenges of living in a metropolis. Taken together, these brilliant plays expose the insecurities, frailties, and contradictions that lie at the heart of Indian middle-class society.
