The ambience of Prithvi with its chestnut stage, its calming grey walls, the grand board studded with posters of the latest plays and even its apathetic cats always draws people back to it, eager for more theatre. Thespo, with its cheerful atmosphere, youthful energy and vast array of opportunities has people young and old, flocking back to it every year. The association with Prithvi that started in 2007 lead to Thespo at Prithvi (or TAP, as we call it) extending the festival beyond just 7 days a year, allowing for plays and workshops to be conducted two days every month. For young theatre addicts, it means coming back to Prithvi Theatre, month after month, for an evening of quality youth theatre that also fits the student budget. For others, it means another opportunity to storm the Prithvi stage, and to participate in the workshops and train. Several of the plays that are showcased at TAP are festival plays performing again; others are those that screened for Thespo, but just missed the cut. With a little more time to work on their show, they get a chance to perform at TAP.
