I'm planning to move to Pune in about a month and I'm really interested in discovering the theatre scene in the city. If you happen to know about some of the professional theatre groups that are currently functional in Pune, their general reputation and history of plays, usual content and language, do tell me about it. That, or the most common cultural spaces or 'addas' that the thespians like to work in. Also, if you know somebody, a friend or an acquaintance, that's a crew member of one these groups, I'd be really interested in getting in touch with them.

This information would be really helpful, as that would largely decide if I'd be heading towards the city. Thanks.

Pune is the undisputed centre of Marathi theatre. I doubt if there is any professional theatre activity in any other language in the city. There must be amateur theatre in English and there may even be some in Hindi at Pune. There is a large student population there. You could start by asking at the colleges. You could also drop by at the Poona Club. I'm sure the wannabee drag artists there put on Charlie's Aunt once in a while.

How about these links for English theatre in Pune:

https://www.facebook.com/PuneTheaterGuide

http://www.quora.com/Pune-Maharashtr...-plays-in-Pune

This article (written 2012) talks about the state of English theatre in Pune. It includes names of local theatrehouses/curators so perhaps you can find ways of getting in touch with them: http://thetossedsalad.com/2012/02/en...ers-or-takers/

Good luck.
