Mumbai Murmurings: 213 Tiny Tales of Theatre is an anecdotal compilation of behind-the-scenes experiences of Mumbai theatre. Alphabetically structured, each letter contains an abundance of stories, connected by a subjective commentary in the form of “Greenroom Gupshup”. This book takes the readers through the memory lanes of theatrewalas: it introduces personages, notable street corners and khanawals, and remarks upon play performances through the years.
