The Platoon: Improvised Theathre- The Grand Experiment II

improvisational comedy theatre
The Grand Experiment II


The year is 2015 and we are back not with a whimper but with a bang.
Mark the coming of this year with experimental theatre, an exploration of man and his conflicts with himself, with society, with God and laugh at him with us as we watch him fail, as we look at his flailing attempts to find meaning, and in his struggle delve into our own fears and desires.
Come watch The Platoon as we try and stretch the limits of our imagination and open scary and fascinating tunnels that reflect the misgivings of our hearts.
Tickets available at the Mad School. A night to laugh, to feel and most importantly to share the fact that we are all ingredients in the proverbial cosmic soup.
Tickets available at the entrance 300 Rupees only. A night of theatre; Improvisational theatre.

Date: Saturday 31st January 2015
Time: 7:30pm to 9:30pm
