Meet The Dholakias
Meet the Dholakias! Your typical Delhi family, with all the squabbles, quirks and hassles that come as they face life in polluted, overcrowded, rat-race Delhi. From home repairmen to a kiss at school, from ostrich farms to arguing about chai ingredients with Dadaji, each week the Dholakia clan is challenged to overcome a hilarious obstacle. Parents Devendra and Babita, the maid Bubbly, the kids Vinny and Kristina, Dada and Dadi, and a host of drop-ins and neighbours keep the Dholakias on their toes, at each other’s throats, and giving each other a helping hand.

- A company of actors, writers and technicians who create a varied program of theatre on a regular basis for the Delhi NCR, Mumbai and wider India audience. We perform scripted plays and create plays from our own experience.
- Our Theatre in Education program takes the techniques of theatre and drama into the classroom. We also work with children in drama classes, workshops and play production, and with groups of physically or mentally challenged people.
- A vibrant community of artists and technicians to create beyond theatre – into events, dance and mime, photography and other forms of expression.
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.
– Oscar Wilde
