Riding Madly Off in All Directions stages Stephen Leacock's humorously satirical work with the verve of a Motley production!

The play is a continuation of Motley's attempt to bring literature on stage. A medley of Leacock’s ruminations, it brings together stories that have absolutely no connection with each other, with the exception of Leacock’s absurdist imagination in action.

Stephen P H Butler Leacock was a Canadian teacher, political scientist, writer, and humourist. Between the years 1910 and 1925, he was the most widely read English-speaking author in the world, known for his light humour and keen reflections on people and their foibles.

Come and see the entire Shah family in action as they explore the many inflections of humour from worlds that are empathetic, dystopic and everything in between!
