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 context. 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.

An original play in English that brings to the fore the
slave trade and male chauvinism issues in India.
