NSD to roll out playwriting course in 2014

New Delhi, Dec 27 : There is dearth of good playwriters in the country, said National School of Drama (NSD) Director Waman Kendre Friday, adding they have plans to start a course on playwriting in 2014.

"We (NSD) will be starting a new course on playwriting from next year. As we feel there is dearth of good playwriters in the country," Kendre told reporters here.

"I strongly believe that a writer and a director are two important and strong foundations of any play. So, if we have our base strong, we will be able to produce better theatre productions," he added.

Not revealing much about it, Kendre also pointed out how NSD has ambitious plans to start courses in other subjects too.

"We plan to start eight courses in subjects like children theatre specialisation, theatre criticism, theatre administration and management, and a few others. But it will take some time to form a structure," he added, saying NSD will eventually start these courses.
