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 festivals (Adhishakti, Ranthambore and Harkat Studios).
