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
Timeless and treasured fables from the Indian sub-continent
Step into the enchanting world of the Moghul King Akbar and his witty advisor, the legendary Birbal…
Mashi and Bhanji are travelling story-tellers, living hand-to-mouth with just a wooden cart, trinkets they have collected on their travels, and a family of mischievous crows for company.
Stopping one day for lunch, they recreate mythical tales of the great 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.
