Summary

A surgeon working in a dilapidated clinic in the hinterland is visited in the dead of night by a family - a man, his pregnant wife and their eight-year-old son. Victims of a senseless attack, they reveal to the surgeon wounds that they could not possibly have survived. 

The surgeon is then issued a preposterous task: to mend the wounds of the dead before sunrise so that the family can return to life. But this is not the only challenge laid before him, and it is only as the night unfolds and morning dawns that the surgeon realises just how intricately his future is tied to that of the dead. 

Night Theatre is a story that will remain with you long after the audiobook ends.

Not sure what I thought of this one.

The story of one night in an rural Indian Hospital when a strange set of events unfold. Although beautifully written not sure I believed in the plot very much.

Having said that it would make a fabulous alternative Christmas eve read. The night when you are most likely to suspend disbelief.
