Jugaad Company - Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF)


We are a Theater collective called Jugaad Company. Started by Jimmy and Anna. Jugaad Co. has a collective theatre experience of close to 25 years with close to 900 stage shows behind them.

Jugaad Co. was set up in 2012 and have performed award winning plays in the short theatre format. Their repertory has several short plays as well as plays in the long format and they have won awards for best acting, production and direction across multiple cities in India.

Both Jimmy and Anna are full-time working professionals in addition to what they do with Jugaad. They are also parents to a 5-year old. Jimmy is an RJ with Radio Mirchi and is a popular figure in Radio and Theater in Bangalore for many years now. Anna is an Analytics professional and partner in an Analytics company called Amplify.

Jugaad Co. has always attempted to tell stories that are urban and relevant to Indian audiences.

Their current offering is a children’s play called “The Day the Crayons Quit”. Realizing the gap of good entertaining theatre for kids in Bangalore, they adapted this play from the book of the same name. It is a very cute story about crayons having issues with the way they are being used and deciding to quit their owner. This adapted version has music dance and a lot of interaction with the kids.

The shows have run to packed houses and have been lapped up by both parents and kids equally.
