On January 17, 2017, the Department of English organised a visit to the legendary Prithvi Theatre for its SY students.
Each year, the Department undertakes this visit to facilitate the students’ understanding and appreciation of Indian-English Drama, which they are studying as a part of the University syllabus. The students were briefed about stagecraft and other theatrical devices that form an important aspect of appreciation of drama. The students showed a keen interest in learning these as well as enthusiastically exploring the theatre hall and the backstage areas. They also expressed their interest in watching a drama performance at the Theatre.
After the visit the students and the staff visited the iconic Prithvi Café for some light refreshments. Its casual ambience served as an ideal venue to appreciate theatre and art.
The students greatly enjoyed the visit.
