The great war of the Mahabharata is over. Or is it? This is a single extended family wracked in conflict. Both sides succumbed to treachery. Ashvatthaman, the young leader of the three survivors on the losing side, is incensed at his father's murder. He returns after dark to the now sleeping encampment. The sacrifice of the unsuspecting champions, the Dead of Night, ensues. The five sons of Pandu have escaped. After a final confrontation, a missile crisis, Ashvatthaman concedes defeat but redirects his missile into the wombs of the victors' women. They miscarry, and cannot hope for more children. Now the survivors, victors and vanquished, must struggle to comprehend their loss. The women of both sides are confronted by their men's mangled corpses in a masterpiece of horror and pathos. But their potent curses must be curbed to usher in a new era. "Mahabharata Books Ten and Eleven" gives voice to the vanquished, to the psychology of loss and the conflicting desires for understanding and revenge.
