Little Thespian holds their 12th National Theatre Festival, Jashn-e-Azhar, from March 18 to 23. It has become Kolkata’s only truly national festival now, by virtue of the fact that they invite more groups from outside the city than from inside to participate. This year, productions come from Jabalpur, Delhi, Gwalior and Jammu. See our separate listings and details for each play according to the date in our Events section. Alongside, discussions about theatre take place on every day.
