“The idea behind Guwahati Theatre Festival is to reach out to wider audiences and help shed the notion that theatre-going is an activity restricted only to a certain section of people,” Sunit Jain, festival chairman, said.

“While we are launching with theatre, we hope to highlight the importance of theatres and plays in the region and promote the culture of appreciating various forms of performing arts,” Jain said.
