MARK TWAIN: LIVE IN BOMBAY


By MTG editorial


In 1895 the celebrated American humourist, Mark Twain, was nearly broke. To recoup his losses Twain set sail around the globe. India was the highlight of his journey. He presented an “at home talk” at Bombay's Novelty Theatre in 1896. Based on his writings and travels, the play recreates Twain sharing tales and yarns from the Mississippi, skewering corrupt politicians, dishonest reporters, religious Bible thumpers and so-called patriots in his witty and irreverent style. Twain's satire, biting at times when he takes on issues of racism, slavery, greed and war, continues to be as relevant today as it was more than 120 years ago.
