Theatre Nisha was founded in 2000 with the aim of producing scripts that reflect social issues, however, not in the sense of preaching a sacrosanct resolution, but as a medium of speaking the truth. Over the past 18 years, we have created a niche audience for ourselves and dealt with genres ranging from Indian mythology to ‘in-yer-face’.


We believe that theatre is a way of life that lends to creativity, self-expression and exploration, and to this effect have worked with several schools, colleges and corporate organizations.

  • Produced over 120 professional plays in English, Tamil and Hindi

  • Designed and directed more than 85 plays for schools and colleges
