The Day Dream is an independent theatre group founded by Aridhi Anderson in New Delhi in 2015. We exist to tell stories, and we perform original scripts as well as adapt and perform well-loved stories from the public domain. We have performed plays based on works by William Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov, Oscar Wilde, Franz Kafka, Mark Twain, Guy de Maupassant, Kate Chopin, Banjo Paterson, and the brothers Grimm, among others. We also regularly conduct actor training workshops in New Delhi and Melbourne.
