About Us Let's Get Acquainted!

Formed in 1988 by a group of young people, fired with enthusiasm to do something unique and dynamic for Tamil Theatre. The group was formally known as Youth Drama Group and was renamed Ravindran Drama Group (RDG) in memory of our friend, the late G. Ravindran. It was his vision, to keep Tamil theatre alive, which sparked the formation of the group.

Being in the Indian Theatre scene for 23 years the group decided it was time they reached out to the society on a wider scale. Thinking forward, in June 2011 RDG took up the challenge to reach a wider audience and formed as a company limited(CO.LTD), with aspirations of becoming a Singaporean Theatre Company
