The three plays in this volume deliver hard hitting blows at the feudal system which still exists in rural India.

All three plays illustrate the broad range of Chandrasekhar kambar's playwriting. The shadow of the Tiger is a symbolic and philosophic work concerned with illusion and reality, and contesting form of truth. Tukra's Dream centers on a poor village who survives precariously on the very edge of rural society. In Alibaba and forty Thieves, the wellknown tale becomes an enjoyable spoof as well as a comment on the greed.

Celebrated as a poet in his home state of Karnataka, Kambar's work is imbued with a poetic sensibility, laced with earthy humor.
