Aadyam Theatre, an initiative by Aditya Birla Group, is now back on stage after 2 years of hiatus. Theatres will soon be filled with laughter, suspense and excitement as Aadyam Theatre celebrates its sixth season in 2023.

This new season of Aadyam Theatre is all about bringing back the joy of live theatre into the lives of people across the country. There will be a mix of proscenium and experimental shows that will be performed in both Mumbai and Delhi. There will also be a bunch of new theatre centric activities, under Aadyam Spotlight, such as theatre podcasts, workshops, a theatre club, and an exclusive theatre blog. Aadyam Spotlight is a budding community for theatre lovers, which aims to make theatre more accessible to people.

The curated lineup of Aadyam, 2022-2023 will consist of -

  • 4 proscenium plays - 24 shows in Mumbai and 12 shows in Delhi - A total of 36 shows.
  • 2 experimental plays - 20 shows in Mumbai and 8 shows in Delhi - A total of 28 shows.


Brian Tellis, Creative Director, Aadyam Theatre said, “Aadyam has, over the years, kept the legacy of theatre alive and abuzz, by providing a substantial canvas to theatrical artists. A canvas that allows their creative thoughts to be brought to life, tales that would otherwise remain unexplored. This is Aadyam’s sixth year, but its first post the pandemic. It almost seems like we are starting all over again. As artists and theatre aficionados, we feel more obliged than ever to give the audience a more stimulating and captivating live performance experience. We want them to have a completely new and never seen before theatrical experience.”

Shernaz Patel, Artistic Director, Aadyam Theatre said, "Today more than ever we are surrounded by stories... On OTT, on podcasts, on social media... both fact and fiction. But the only medium that allows us to be completely immersed in a story is the theatre. Because it unfolds in front of us. It is immediate. It is live. We all yearned for this collective sharing through the pandemic and now, thanks to Aadyam, we are back... with stories that make you laugh, think and feel. This time around we don't want you to only be a spectator. So we have created exciting ways to make you an integral part of our story. We hope you join us this season. Let's all share the joy of the theatre together.”

Nadir Khan, Artistic Director, Aadyam Theatre said, “It’s been a great pleasure and highlight of my professional career to have been associated with Aadyam over the years. As a director who’s been fortunate enough to have had a show at every edition of Aadyam since its inception, I can honestly say that it provides a wonderful and not-so-common opportunity to theatre practitioners and audiences, and has become a very valuable part of our theatrical landscape. This particular edition is important since it’s the first one since the enforced halt that was the pandemic. Through the hiatus we were very encouraged to see that the hunger and passion for live theatre - for audiences and the theatre fraternity alike - did not wane and we are excited to come back to our traditional stages and live audiences with wonderful shows, a renewed perspective, and a challenge to pick up where we left off.”
