Jangal Ke Daawedaar

The Play
History repeats itself and so does the struggle of the people who
populate legends and folklores outside the strict confines of a
history. Jangal Ke Daawedaar documents one such struggle.
Unfolding the saga of past, not too distant, it draws many
immediate contemporary parallels.
     The Director
The former Director of National School of Drama, Devendra
Raj Ankur is one of the most pronounced signatures in modern
Indian theatre. The bulk of his works has been an extraordinary
combination of both creative and scholarly accomplishments.
Best known for his experiment par excellence, Kahani ka
Rangmanch, his endeavours have not been confined only to
directorial ventures. He has authored six books of theatre
criticism including Pahla Rang and Rang Collage. He has
several translations and adaptations of important foreign plays to
his credit. As a visiting faculty, he has been invited to many
countries including Russia, China, Denmark, Sri Lanka and
Maldives. At present, he looks after the Extension Programme of
the National School of Drama.
