Rage is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

Our Story

Rage’s journey started in 1992 with Are there Tigers in the Congo? The Rage trio, Rajit Kapur, Shernaz Patel and Rahul da Cunha, have since produced some of India’s more memorable productions – 

I’m not Bajirao – pioneered the concept of the Indian English play and ran for over a hundred shows

Class of ’84 – completed over 300 performances and is still going strong

Pune Highway – this ran for over a 100 shows and toured the world

Girish Karnad’s Flowers – brought together some of the greatest talent from around the country 

One On One and One One One -2 – both collaborations with some of the finest directing and playwriting talent in Mumbai

Mahua and Naqqaash – our forays into Hindi Theatre

Djinns of Eidgah and Hard Places – collaborations with UK partners

Me, Kash & Cruise and Chaos Theory – Both crossed the 50 show mark

And most recently The Glass Menagerie, The Siddhus of Upper Juhu, Twelve Angry Jurors and Anand Express.

Rage has not only regaled audiences in every corner of India, but also in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Malaysia, Oman, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, UAE, UK and the USA.

The company is also the force behind the playwriting initiative, Writers’ Bloc (in partnership with the Royal Court theatre, UK, the British Council and the Jindal group). Since its inception in 2001, 50 emerging playwrights have been trained and 41 Indian playwrights have premiered plays at the Writers’ Bloc festivals. In 2012 five of these plays were performed in a week of readings at the Royal Court in London. And to celebrate completion of 15 years of the project, the British Council commissioned Rage to present a Showcase of 13 plays at their nine centres around India.

Rage has created big events for corporate clients and also forayed into training using theatre skills to conduct bespoke workshops for large corporates.

Aside from performances around the country, their 2017 line up includes a large charity fund raiser for the arts, a premier at the Prithvi Festival and a British Council India/Creative Scotland schools project in collaboration with the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh.
