Thespo at Prithvi

Thespo at Prithvi was started in 2007 to provide a more regular showcasing of the best youth theatre talent in the country. Thus every first Tuesday and Wednesday each month, the next generation of theatre wallahs stride across the hallowed Prithvi stage.

Thespo at Prithvi is also providing an opportunity for young theatre groups to showcase their short plays, as a pre show appetizer before the main show on each Thespo at Prithvi show day.

Thespo at Prithvi in January '10

Hot on the heels of their success at Thespo 11, Pune youth theatre groups return to Prithvi Theatre.

Natak Company presents Dalan.
Directed by Nipun Dharmadhikari

Dalan is a hilarious musical comedy set in a small village in Maharashtra. A tyrannical school master arrives at his new posting and has to reckon with the antics of a lively bunch of school children. To make matters worse, the school master finds he is irresistibly attracted to the mother of one of the students. Adapted from a short story by D.M. Mirasdar, this is a wicked roller-coaster of a play that promises to be a laugh riot.

At Thespo X, Dalan won a slew of awards for Male Actor, New Writing and Outstanding Play.
The play is showing at Prithvi Theatre at 6pm on 12 Jan. 2010.
