IHC Theatre Festival
The annual IHC Theatre Festival, launched in 2002, brings audiences an eclectic mix of classics, translations, adaptations and original devised scripts that showcase significant strands of theatre practice from across India. Around ten productions are staged at the event every year. In addition to the performances, there are film screenings, talks and workshops.

After taking a break in 2021 owing to the pandemic, the IHC Theatre Festival returned in 2022 with ten productions. The line-up at the festival ranged from solo performances to large-scale productions, for all ages.
