One man, One throne, One crown, One hilariously tragic experience.
Amidst thunder and lightening, the three witches meet with Beth and Banquo, From there on Beth tries his best to live up to the prophesies with his imaginary friend Banquo. Together they narrate this murderous tale sincerely.
Welcome to a roller coaster ride in the world created by Beth and Banquo. The Tragedy of Madbeth is a highly interactive physical comedy 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.

Director’s Note:  We create works of theatre that have a universal appeal.We believe in experimentation and innovation that can challenge the creator as well as theatre as an art form. Theatre that is provocative and can stimulate the imagination and raise questions for its audiences as well as practitioners;  Humour is a very essential part of our work and The Tragedy of Madbeth is an extention of that philosophy and work practice.
