Since 1978, Prithvi Theatre has been the center of everything good in Indian theatre. There are many plays which are considered great because they were performed at this venue. With an admirable lineup every month, it is an ideal venue even if you are going in the middle of the week. It is situated a little far from the hustle and bustle and you can sip on delicious Irish coffee as you wait for your play to start. A little before September begins, you can start making plans to watch some amazing plays and we are here to help you with a list of plays you should not miss at Prithvi in the first fortnight of September.
