Drama Section

The INT has been equally active in the field of dramatic productions. It has set up a number of drama units in English and various Indian languages like, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, etc. Through these linguistic units, the INT has sought to tap the best dramatic talent and resources in the country and provide them with regular outlet and opportunities for developing their talent and for staging of plays in each language. The plays produced by the Drama Section has been widely appreciated for the high standard of production. The Gujarati Unit has by far been the most prolific and most regular unit of all.

"Rangilo Rajja" a rollicking social comedy staged by Gujarati Unit had an epoch making 101 nights run in those days. Not a single drama had done it before nor any had done it since during those early years. More than a hundred nights run was unusual and unique in Indian amateur Theatre. Another drama titled "Mazam Raat" had the distinction to be selected for the National Drama Festival, Delhi where it won a prize in its language group. The Unit had staged an experimental problem play called "Kadam Milake Chalo", a satire on the language problem of the Bombay State. This production also attained a great success and secured the best Gujarati Play Prize in the Bombay State Drama Competition 1958. "Santu Rangili" and "Moti Verana Chokman" were too more feathers in INT's cap.

The Marathi Unit of INT produced many prestigious productions - some of which includes "Tee Phoolarani" adapted and directed by Late P. L. Deshpande and acted by Satish Dubhashi and Bhakti Barve performing more than 750 nights, "Kanyadaan" written by Vijay Tendulkar, directed by Sadashiv Amrapurkar was another landmark for INT. The caste of the play were Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Suhas Joshi performing more than 200 nights, "Chhinna" written by Waman Tawde and directed by Sadashiv Amrapurkar, with the caste of the play being Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Ashalata Wabgaonkar and first time on the stage was seen the famous late Smita Patil.
