About the group:

Motley was formed by Naseeruddin Shah and Benjamin Gilani in 1979. From being an itinerant troupe of two, Motley (later including Tom Alter, Ratna Pathak, Kenny Desai and Akash Khurana) now has a pretty large membership. The group went on to produce several short and full-length English plays. Motley’s diverse plays include Beckett’s Waiting For Godot, Shaw's Arms and the Man, Neil Simon's The Odd Couple. The group has adapted works by Premchand, Manto, Murakami, Italo Calvino, and Kahlil Gibran.
