Theatre development plays an important role in empowering the creative arts industry in Malaysia in line with technological advances. The MalaysianIndie Identity Theatrestudy in Malay Drama Stage Development is carried out to bring professionals, academics, practitioners and students from across the country to jointly foster the potential of participants in the creative industry. Indie Theatre is a new theatre genre that is evolving in the Malay drama stage. This has indirectly opened a new perspective on the concept of form and content in indie theatre performances. Hence, this study is to find out the form of indie theatre production that is able to attract the audience? The research was able to achieve two objectives, namelyto describe the form of Malaysian Indie theatre in the development of the Malay drama and to analyse the identity and contents of the Malaysian Indie theatre. The researcher conducted the study by interviewing four informants who are activists and academics in the theatre field. Subsequently, after analysing the data, the researcher unravelled the form and content with the Identity theory guide to build the identity of the Indie theatre production.
