Theatre Nisha was established in 2000 with the performance of Harold Pinter’s Ashes to Ashes. Since its inception, we have been known to choose scripts that reflect society in its truest forms. We have performed over 130 plays that range from mythology to ‘in-yer-face’ which have included international playwrights such as Albert Camus, Harold Pinter, Sarah Kane, Simon Stephens, Samuel Beckett, Jean Anouilh, Stephen Berkoff, Jean Genet, Dario Fo, etc; ancient playwrights like Bhasa, Kalidasa, Seneca, Euripides etc; and modern Indian playwrights like Girish Karnad, Rajiv Naik, Chandrashekhara Kambara etc. and several in-house written plays.
Additionally, we regularly conduct workshops on acting, design, movement and playwriting for students, professional actors and anyone who is interested in the craft! In addition, we have also directed over 80 plays for schools and colleges.
