Family Friendly
Saturday 14 October 2017

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 as their only possession 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.

“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
