Archiving and sharing classic plays that offer enduring quality to aficionados and students of theater.

In spite of being a performing art, archival of theater has mostly been in the form of manuscripts, memoirs, critiques and photographs. We have taken a small step by starting the process of archival of classics on a regular basis. Marathi Theater has always been known for innovation and experimentation- both in the form and the content. It is true that it is impossible to package the raw energy of a live performance in a medium like a teleplay. However, our first teleplay project (“Soorya Paahilelaa MaaNoos”) showed us how this medium accentuates certain nuances of the performance, which are not easily noticeable in a live performance. Overall we have received encouraging responses from both the fans and the students of serious theater for this endeavor.
