Prithvi Theatre |

The annual Prithvi Theatre Festival scheduled to commemorate the birth anniversary of Prithviraj Kapoor on November 3 and the opening of the theatre (named after him) on November 5, 1978, is one of the most important events on Mumbai’s cultural calendar. For two years, the coronavirus played spoilsport, but this year, the festival is back in full force — 10 days of plays, music, dance, discussions, and most important of all, that feel of belonging to the performing arts community and finding a reason to rejoice.

Here are five plays that you must watch at Prithvi Festival

Dhat Teri Yeh Grihasthi

Makrand Deshpande can always be depended on for his provocative ideas. His latest play is about an unhappy couple that sets up an organisation for people to hire a spouse and understand the institution of marriage.
