The book surveys the growth of Bengali theatre from its beginning a hundred and fifty years ago to the present day.

Theatre came to Bengal from England about two hundred years ago via the early English traders and colonial rulers of Calcutta. In tracing its development this book described the influences the Bengali theatre has been subject to and the milieu in which it was born and has grown to its present proportions. Persons and personalities, play houses and playwrights, actors and directors are some of the subjects dealt with.
