About

Have you ever imagined to laugh out loud with one of the most tragic, ferocious and madden character in the history of theatre? MADBETH promises to take you on the funniest, wittiest and chuckle-duckle twisted ride out of the box.


Welcome to a roller coaster ride in the world created by Rupesh Tillu. MADBETH is a highly interactive physical comedy loosely inspired by Shakespeare's classic. A profound allegory that dissolves the space between observer and performer. The performance is a combination of slapstick, acrobatics, mime, songs and improvisations.


MADBETH has been played for a wide range of audience in Europe, Israel-Palestine, USA and India and across other parts of the world.


Finally the popular play returns back onto the stage in a series of festival (Adhishakti, Ranthambore and HARKAT STUDIOS).

About the production

Theatre act produces works of theatre that deals with international issues and have an universal appeal. We believe in experimentation and innovation that can challenge the creator as well as theatre as an art form itself. Theatre that is provocative and can stimulate the imagination and raise questions for its audiences. Humour is an essential part of our work. Our aim is to create an international platform for theatre practitioners, where different cultures can fuse, share ideas and carry on researching so as to create a theatrical language and style that is unique and can be expressed beyond any political boundaries. We believe that children are universal citizens, therefore investment in children through theatre practice is very important for the globalised world that we live in. We want to bring high quality theatre to under privileged children regardless their country or ethnicity.
