About the Play

This critically acclaimed play by Sahitya Akademi award-winning playwright Mahesh Dattani examines the never-ending saga of Hindu-Muslim conflict in India. Which “side” should take the blame for the madness? What does the future hold? The play ponders these difficult questions through the lens of three generations of a middle-class Gujarati family as they harbor two Muslim boys during a communal riot. Through a stylishly choreographed “mob” that represents the collective voice of either community, and a narrative that slickly moves back and forth between today and 1947, Final Solutions makes us rethink our own communal prejudices and perceptions.
