Abstract

In The Colonial Public and the Parsi Stage: The Making of the Theatre of Empire (1853-1893), Rashna Darius Nicholson presents a new account of the birth and coming of age of Parsi theatre in India in the second half of the nineteenth century. Successfully charting the transformations to this preeminent form of entertainment in late colonial South Asia, the book uses the interesting and under-examined lens of Parsi theatre to explore the ambivalences and dichotomies that marked the emergence of a vernacular public sphere in the period, writes Aparajita Mukhopadhyay. The Colonial Public and the Parsi Stage: The Making of the Theatre of Empire (1853-1893). Rashna Darius Nicholson. Palgrave. 2021.
