Durban Dialogues, Then and Now is a follow-up anthology of three hard-hitting plays to Singh's successful drama anthology Durban Dialogues, Indian Voice (2013) which is now studied internationally. The plays selected, namely Swing, Shooting and Into the Grey, cover topics such as discrimination in sport, bereavement, and social activism.

Described through Singh's satirical lens, these thought-provoking plays bring us up-to-date with the challenges of life in post-Apartheid South Africa. They focus particularly on people of Indian origin and their relationship with other South African communities and chart the loss of ideals in the dream of the Rainbow nation.

With a Foreword by director Ralph Lawson, and Introduction by Pranav Joshipura, Professor of English, Mahila College, Gandhinagar, India.
