Theatrical Counter Publics

This article is an effort to formulate a more nuanced and textured view of “publics and counter publics” in the wake of the insightful revisionist public sphere discourse through theatre. A historic play in Malayalam You Made Me a Communist by Thoppil Bhasi and its five responsive “counter plays” appearing over 50 years in the second part of the 20th century are studied. Also, it looks at how theatre interacts with the sociocultural problems of an age in its process of bringing an active public discourse in a definite place and space limit.
