The stage is all set. Artists are all pumped up and ready to take you through a journey never experienced before! The Shakespeare Comedy Theatre Festival is coming up with four different adaptations of famous Shakespeare plays, in Delhi, just for your enjoyment. Watch ‘King Lear’, ‘Hamlet’, ‘As You Like It’ and ‘Macbeth’ in a way that will blow you away. All the characters are clowns and the plays are beautifully adapted & directed by renowned actor Rajat Kapoor . The team includes Bollywood stars Vinay Pathak, Kalki Koechlin , Cyrus Sahukar, Ranvir Shorey and Neil Bhoopalam, among plenty more, who have all done a fantastic job. They have got some great reviews from every place they have enacted these shows before, and this event in Delhi is absolutely unmissable at the moment.

Once again, the clowns draw us to the world of Macky B and his Lady. The righteous Macky B is a good man, brave soldier, loyal friend, and he would have been the same perhaps, if he didn’t meet those three weird sisters that night! He would have been happier. Sometimes it is better to not know what is in store for us. Sometimes, all you need is a little push to the other side.

A bunch of clowns are putting up a show of Hamlet; they sometimes misinterpret the text, sometimes find new meanings in it, sometimes try and understand it, very often make a mess of it. They chose to use some phrases from the play and mix it with gibberish. They even edited the text, threw out some important scenes, and made a mess of the order of things as if the pages got mixed up. But through this all, they were simply looking for the essence of hamlet, and trying to find a context in our own times.

A troupe of clowns has not been doing too well lately. Combined with the downhill box financial status, the relationships of the clowns is all messed up. Nobody can stand anybody else in the troupe really. The director tries to put up another Shakespeare play and decides that the men will play women and women, men. The troupe rebels. But in spite of all their fears and doubts, they do manage to put up a show eventually, and in the process they discover something new about themselves.

Ever thought what a clown does when he is depressed? It sure is tough being a clown. Here is one who hasn’t stopped crying for days and boy, does he have plenty of reasons. The one he loved most has left him and gone away for good. Now he has nothing. Also, he isn’t getting any younger. In fact he is old. But more than anything else, he is sad because he has been forced to perform this play.
