Lillete Dubey’s ‘The PrimeTime Theatre Company’ Celebrates its 15th Anniversary...

The Primetime Theatre Company celebrates its 15th anniversary with a Theatre Festival at Prithvi and at the NCPA experimental theatre. The festival includes some of the company’s best-loved plays. The productions are widely different, both stylistically and thematically, and belong to different genres, but share one common thread. They are all indigenous and original products, written by Indian authors and set in a distinctively Indian mileu. These are all plays that have traveled widely in India and abroad, (from Singapore to San Francisco) and have played at several national and international festivals.

(PLEASE NOTE: Due to the World Cup all shows will start at 8 pm and will be over by 10 - 10.15 latest)
