Description

During the colonial rule in India, fate throws together a diverse cast onto the San Souci Theatre stage – Esther Leech, the Kohinoor of Bengal theatre; James Barry, the theatre manager facing bankruptcy; Alice Anderson, the enchanting English woman estranged from her husband Thomas Anderson; and Baboo Bustomchurn Addy, the dark Bengali actor infatuated with Alice and ready to kill for her.
Yet, history has forgotten this cast who perished with the San Souci Theatre until it’s discovered by a school boy in Calcutta desperate to tell their story. To help him is an effervescent Anglo Indian beauty. She’s mute. It was the end of innocence and the dawn of a glorious institution. Unearth the story of the greatest theatre in colonial India hidden for the last 150 years inside the pages of this epic school-age novel.
