IFA proudly presents a dramatised reading of Vikram Seth and James Thurber's Beastly Tales by Motley with Naseeruddin Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Heeba Shah and Kenny Desai.

Save the Date Naseeruddin Shah is back for IFA Fundraiser in Beastly Tales, October 8th!

Quirky stories in verse, these Beastly Tales come from across the world and from the crevices of Seth and Thurber's imagination. Here the animals are the protagonists and the fables, familiar. The surprising twists and turns in the tales will keep you hooked till the very end!

Amusing, perceptive and sometimes scary, these tales meld the human and the animal, reflecting the best and the worst of both. They elucidate the essence of Motley's philosophy over the last fifteen years - to perform on stage without any trappings and to let words alone convey these great stories with wonderful characters.

This is a show for all ages, specially geared to convey that there is more to poetry than just rhyming couplets.
