Since the pandemic has stopped us from going to the theatre, a mother-daughter duo have taken it upon themselves to bring it to us!

Standing tall for the last 48 years in the heart of the country’s capital, the Akshara Theatre is an iconic hub. As artistes battle the economic consequences of the cancellation of live performances, the co-founders of Akshara, Jalabala Vaidya and her daughter Anasuya Vaidya, are launching a #SaveTheStage campaign. Run by Akshara actor Lubhanshi Jain, it aims to help artistes to stay connected with audiences and highlight the changes necessary for the arts to survive: specifically, the digitisation of theatre.

Jalabala Vaidya has directed and played the protagonist in the play The Cabuliwala.
