This volume contains playscripts of three plays and a long interview with the playwright.

The author is a Marxist scholar, an academic, and a widely produced and translated playwright. Every one of his plays has been put on stage by major directors. His plays have a reputation for being dense in ideas, discussion and debate. This volume of three plays - A Man in Dark Times / Past one O'clock / A Passage to Darkness - deals with the impact on human beings, and their relationships, of the collapse of the communist ideal, and the vacuum left by the loss of belief.

The books also carries introductory essays by both the author and theatre critic Samik Bandyopadhyay.
