Now in its second year, Wintertime @Prithvi is around the corner and has a promising line-up of workshops for children. "Sanjna (Kapoor) started the summertime season of workshops and plays for children over 20 years ago. We would get a lot of requests to do more such events. 

We realised that for one week around Christmas, children are away from school. So, we decided to repeat the concept at this time too," shares Kunal Kapoor of Prithvi Theatre.

Telling us about the curation process, he adds, "We involve the regular theatre groups and directors, who perform at Prithvi to present
a play or workshop for children on the given dates, take their suggestions and put together a programme we think would be appreciated and would be good for kids."
