With the 19th edition of the annual youth theatre festival, we take a step forward to achieve our goal of nurturing a global community of young theatre professionals. Apart from full-length productions and performances, we have a number of workshops and collaborations that further build the skills of the next generation of theatrewalas!

The festival will take place from 18th to 24th December 2017, at Prithvi Theatre and Little Theatre (NCPA), Mumbai, India. We’ve had over 141 registrations for full length plays and a further 41 registration for short plays. These have come from 17 different towns and cities including Ahmednagar, Lucknow, Islampur, Guwahati, Baroda, Nagpur, Chennai and Udupi among others. The Screening Panel is currently watching these plays, that are spread across 13 languages.

 Our plans this year include trying to bring down a Brazillian theatremaker to work with Indian performers, a more developed version of our Director’s Adda programme, and many more innovations during the seven day festival, so that we can properly Dial up the Drama!
