The international smash hit Harry Potter parody is coming to Dubai for one week only, as part of a sell-out world tour. The Best Entertainment & Family Show Olivier Award Nominee Potted Potter takes on the ultimate challenge of condensing all seven Harry Potter books (and a real-life game of Quidditch) into seventy hilarious minutes.
Even if you don’t know the difference between a Horcrux and a Hufflepuff, this brilliant comedy will make you roar with laughter. This show is perfect for ages six to Dumbledore (who is very old indeed).
“Inventive, daft fun for all the family that doesn't feel the slightest bit cynical. A winner in every way.” The Guardian
“The duo casts the perfect spell over the audience." - The New York Times – Critics’ Picks
“Gloriously irreverent. A very lovable romp through Rowling’s back catalogue.” Time Out London – Critics’ Choice
“I guarantee you’ll go positively potty over Potted Potter. Muggle or master wizard, you’re going to love this show.” Toronto Star

Fresh from shows in the UK and Australia, Lottering’s show at DUCTAC’s Centrepoint Theatre will feature brand new material, covering his unique views on a broad range of topics ranging from dog whisperers to his fascination with reality TV.
And he’ll also explain exactly why it is that he refuses to work on Sundays…
Brought to life by Backstage, one of Dubai’s most popular amateur theatre groups, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play Doubt takes the audience through a journey of uncertainty and paranoia.
A nun in a Bronx Catholic school in 1964 suspects a popular priest of inappropriate behaviour. Armed with nothing more than a resolute belief in her suspicion and a few circumstantial details, she instigates a relentless campaign to remove the priest.
In 2008 Doubt was made into an Oscar nominated film starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Ages 13+
Location: Kilachand Studio Theatre, DUCTAC

Based on the famous tale from The Arabian Nights, Aladdin is a musical story for children magically brought to life on stage by the producers of Shakespeare 4 Kidz.
Starring S4K favourite Noel Harron, Aladdin tells the story of a young street urchin who is tricked by a wicked sorcerer into retrieving a mysterious oil lamp – a lamp that contains a mystical genie. Aladdin eventually learns the lesson that in life there is no easy way to get what you really want – and that you should be very careful what you wish for!
Action-packed, fun-filled and ideal for children of all ages, Aladdin is a delightful, musical comedy show with plenty of audience-participation and interactive fun including puppetry, illusion, music and catchy songs played by a talented actor-musician company.

October 11 - 12, 2014
Kambakth Bilkul Aurat (Ismat Apa ke Naam – II), Directed by the legendry Naseeruddin Shah, in a MOTLEY production, is a collection of three stories - Amar Bel, Nanhi ki Naani & Do Haath, narrated by Manoj Pawah, Lovleen Mishra & Seema Pawah respectively.
Amar Bel is the story of this husband whose wife’s mesmerizing beauty, who he was an admirer of initially, gradually turns into a sap sucking Cuscuta reflexa, the immortal vine for him because even though he gets on a decline of health and looks, her beauty gets more enchanting with time.
Nanhi ki Naani is the story of this woman who having lost everything in life and presumed dead many a times by people, keeps surviving only to be killed by an act which one would, otherwise, not categorize as worth life taking.
Do Haath is the story of a pair of hands, just a pair of hands and nothing but a pair of hands. Two hands, which add up to the support system of a being, cannot be categorized as legitimate or illegitimate for, it’s the only support there is.
