The Hindu Theatre Festival 2016- A recap

Another year goes by and the LIVE from EVAM team has pulled off the 12th Edition of the Hindu Theatre Fest in style. Spanning across Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad over 3 weeks, the Fest hosted 14 shows. Not only did audiences get to watch some of the best English theatre from around the country, but they also had the opportunity to enjoy some quality regional content in the shape of three fabulous Tamil plays in Chennai.

Every year we see wonderful teams coming together in each city, a mix of old and new members, working very hard to make sure it is the smoothest and most fun experience for artists and audiences alike. Here are the teams from Chennai, Hyderabad & Bengaluru.

Finally, wrapping in Bengaluru at the beautiful Rangashankara theatre starting on 6th September. Despite regional issues, the team was able to pull off a very smooth execution.

Of course none of this would be possible without the continued support and trust that The Hindu places in us year on year.

As is always with projects of this magnitude, the entire team, although very exhausted, is left with a sudden sense of emptiness, after a month of hard work and long hours. It will be a long wait for next year, but we are sure it will be well worth it.
