Boston Globe Coverage of OUTNOB

is a non-profit English theater group in the Boston area.

Our mission is to build bridges between Indian and Western cultures through the medium of theater.

SETU will selectively produce plays to project the ways of life in India in a global cocss1/img/rerun-poster-1.jpgntext. It will attempt to highlight India's social, political and economic scenarios from the past and the present. India has rich and diverse tradition in drama beginning from ancient times by Sanskrit playwrights. Indian theater has found expressions in diverse forms from folk theater to musicals to modern drama forms. SETU will attempt to present some of these in the contemporary context and, in the process, create a better appreciation of India's heritage and culture.
