“Riding Madly off in all Directions”


Jan 19 2017

Legendary actors Naseeruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak Shah are set to mesmerize Theatre aficionados in Dubai with the latest Motley Production, “Riding Madly off in all Directions”. The show is scheduled on January 20, 2017 at Centrepoint Theatre, DUCTAC. It is a family affair with the entire Shah family including children Heeba, Vivaan and Imaad coming together on play for the first time. Penned by British-born Canadian political scientist and humourist, Stephen Leacock, the set of five short stories are a satirical and amusing take on the everyday. It will show mundane happenings, cleverly moulded into separate plots, with a fair sprinkling of at times tongue-in-cheek humour. The situations might seem dark at times, designed to make one smile, not laugh.

The five stand-alone plots of “Riding Madly off in all Directions” has been directed by Naseeruddin Shah himself, The stories may not be seemingly connected to each other, but Leacock’s satirical thread runs through every one of them as they highlight the human life experiences, with a touch of dark humour. While Vivaan grasps the audience’s attention in his desperate attempt to borrow a matchbox to light a cigar, Heeba embodies an early 20th-century working-class American woman trying to open a bank account. Imaad, on the other hand, enthrals all with his class act as card-conjuror’s victim, who he outwits with ease.
