While remapping the region by examining enduring historical and cultural connections, this study discusses multiple traditions and practices of theatre and performance in five South Asian countries within their specific political and socio-cultural contexts.

Ashis Sengupta's Mapping South Asia through Contemporary Theatre: Essays on the Theatres of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka is an exceptionally interesting and informative collection of essays. provide a highly informative and wonderfully enlightening context enabling us to understand contemporary uses of performance across cultures. will be rewarding reading not only for scholars in literary and cultural studies, but also for those interested in racial/gender dynamics and politics more generally. (Kathleen L. Komar and Ross Shideler, Recherche littéraire/Literary Research, Vol. 33, 2017)

The volume, as a whole, makes an important contribution in mapping the contours of the theatres of the South Asian nations. All the essays record the urge for articulations in the theatres, produced and received often under volatile circumstances. In brief, this comprehensive study of the theatres of South Asia has been a distinctive addition to recent theatre studies. (Abhijit Sen, Asiatic, Vol. 9 (2), December, 2015)
