Prithvi Theatre goes international, to hold 5-day annual fest in Dubai
For about 40 years now, Prithvi Theatre, which is owned and run by the Prithviraj Kapoor Memorial Trust and Research Foundation, has performed in different cities across India with over 600 shows a year.
The centre for theatre in the country is now all set go international as team Prithvi heads to Dubai for a festival to showcase some of the highlights from theatre performed by the group.
Starting April 27, five-day festival will include performances and stage talks by Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Vinay Pathak, Sonali Kulkarni and Rajit Kapoor.
Speaking to a city tabloid, Prithvi trustee Kunal Kapoor said, “Raging Tiger approached me with the idea of holding a Prithvi Festival in Dubai and showcasing some of our plays for the Dubai audience. I was naturally thrilled as it is an opportunity to expose a larger audience to our theatre grown out of Mumbai,” he said.
Kunal also informed that this is going to be an annual event.
