Safidon also comes in the area of 45 Kos of the Mahabharata war in Kurukshetra. Ras Kala Manch Safidon is in the planning of building an auditorium in the name of historical name Sarpdaman for its studio theatre.

For the audience, arrangements will be made to sit outside the auditorium to avoid sunshine and rain. The parking facility for two-wheelers and cars will be provided to the audience in the courtyard of this auditorium. To get the set and items of play, a 14 feet wide road will be kept to the stage to avoid any kind of discomfort of the artists.

Whether you are a writer or an actor or a stage manager, you are trying to express the complications of life through a shared enterprise. That's what theatre was, always. And live performance shares that with an audience in a specific compact: the play is unfinished unless it has an audience, and they are as important as everyone else.
