Motley Theatre Group

Presenting multi-genre theater performances to Indian audiences, the Mumbai-based Motley Theatre Group performs works in both Hindustani and English. The group, established in 1970 by film icon Naseeruddin Shah and Benjamin Gilani of the Film and Theatre Institute of India, has found its niche in “story-telling” theater. Originally performing classic Western plays such as Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett, the Motley Theatre Group now performs in Hindustani in order to preserve India’s theater legacy.
