Three spacesBhulabhai Desai Memorial Institute, Walchand Terrace and Chhabildas School Hallprovided the necessary impetus for theatre in Mumbai to flourish. These places saw influential visionary personalities like Ebrahim Alkazi, Vijaya Mehta, Satyadev Dubey and Sulabha Deshpande mould young theatre people, from playwrights, directors and actors to lighting and set designers. Plays like Band Darwaze, Aadhe Adhure, Hayavadana and Uddhwasta Dharmashala, amongst countless others performed in these spaces, broke new ground and continue to inspire the present generation.This book, the first to document the significant work carried out in these places, transports us back to a time of fearless experimentation in theatre. People, places and plays come alive through the memories of eminent theatre personalities. Full of fascinating information, insights and anecdotes, The Scenes We Made is a testimony to the never- say-die spirit of the theatrewalas, a spirit they share with cosmopolitan Mumbai.
