National School of Drama’s (NSD) Repertory Company is back with its annual Summer Theatre Festival in the capital, a seasonal staple now in its 41st year. For New Delhi’s busy, harried residents, this is welcome respite in the blazing heat.

The ongoing season offers inspired contradictions, fresh creations and crowd-pleasing favourites. The audience will get to witness the best of the Repertory Company. 

The five productions in the festival that began on Wednesday are by five different directors, and give a taste of divergent styles and forms. The aim was to bring variety, says NSD director Waman Kendre. There are some old classics, and some new productions like Aadha Chand, Vidyottama, and Ghazab Teri Adaa which was performed last year. “We revived Ghasiram Kotwal, as it is a long-running play. Tajmahal ka Tender, on the other hand, is back by great public demand,” he says.
