Theatre Speaks

Lillete Dubey
Actor
[English/Hindi Theatre ]
Lillete Dubey"In India, theatre still plays second fiddle to films. You just have to step off the plane in places in Europe and you’d be surprised to find how theatre artistes are honoured. Such is not the case with India. Mumbai is too caught up with commercial theatre; the film culture has grossly permeated every realm of our life. At least, elsewhere in the country, people seem excited about the theatre but this is not true of Mumbai. Young Theatre groups may be making efforts but then what is the point if you have to shut shop after twelve or fifteen shows? We are too apologetic about theatre. It is necessary that we keep our integrity but we also need to figure out how to keep the other logistics going. Passion is what drives theatre but it has to find an audience. As I keep saying it is the audience that decides the fate of the theatre ultimately."
