DRAMATIC TECHNIQUES IN MAHESH DATTANI’S RADIO PLAYS

Manisha Sinha, Dr Shravan Kumar.

Abstract
Radio drama is an art performance which is purely audio-based and has no visual component.
Indian playwright Mahesh Dattani has played a vital role in popularising English radio drama in India. This
paper analyses the dramatic techniques used by Dattani in Do the Needful (1997), Seven Steps Around the Fire
(1999), The Swami and Winston (2000) and Uma and the Fairy Queen (2003). The creation of internal and
external spaces, the devices of interior monologue and voice modulation are some of the key elements used by
Dattani to convey the meanings and layers of the drama to the audience.

Key words: radio play, interior monologue, voice modulation, acoustic, drama
