Bangalore Little Theatre

Adapted for the stage from The Emperor of all Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee

Monsters in the Dark

The play, adapted from The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee is about people – People who have soldiered through fiercely demanding regimens to survive; people who have endured with them and the people who have worked to increase our understanding of cancer. The play takes you through the history of cancer treatment and research across time with stories of frustration and energy, structure and leadership, grief and survival, hope and risk, failure and endurance, isolation and confidence. The stories, personal and clinical will be brought alive through Sidney Farber, Gordon Zubrod, Carla Reed and a few more.

A little bit about us

At 58, Bangalore Little Theatre or BLT is Bangalore’s oldest English language theatre group. Old-timers of BLT have often been asked the secret of the group’s long life when, in contrast, one sees hundreds of cases of groups starting with a bang and dropping by the wayside in a couple of years. The difference, it seems, is in the simple fact that BLT is a membership organisation and, therefore, a genuine group.
