About Us


The mission of DFW Play is to create entertaining, socially relevant, and shareable theater for both youth and adults. We produce original as well as adapted works, collaborate with arts communities locally and across the United States, and enrich the cultural diversity of North Texas by preserving the rich artistic heritage of Indian and Bengali theater. We believe that young people will change the world for the better and aim to empower young minds and second generation immigrants to be confident, curious, and creative through performing arts and community involvement.


A passion for performing arts binds us all together. As we go about our normal lives and day jobs, what burns within is a need for expression. Through drama, dance, stagecraft, music and performance we want to bring our experiences to you our beloved audience. Our backgrounds are tied to Indian culture and aesthetics, from Bengal in the eastern part of India, but our experiences are also very much American. It is that nostalgia of our past, the sensibility of our present, and the enigma of the future that we bring to our new home. We create, we engage, we entertain, and we inspire. And, most importantly, we put theatre at the center of it all.
