Mashi Theatre, in association with The Spark Arts For Children and supported by Z-arts, presents
Tales of Birbal
by Sayan Kent
from an original concept by Trina Haldar
Travelling story-tellers Mashi and Bhanji earn their keep by recreating en-chanting tales of the great Moghul King Akbar and his wise companion, Birbal. How can a man survive a night in a freezing lake? How many crows are there in a kingdom? Only Birbal knows!
Using humour, puppetry, music and the occasional fake beard, Mashi and Bhanji bring to vivid life these famous tales that have been treasured for generations.
“What a great show. If you are wanting laughter, to go into the imagination and connect with your inner child, then this play has it all!” -- Audience Member
