An iconic Indian tale inspired by Satyajit Ray's short story
Wed 10 October, Thurs 6 & Fri 7 December, 7.30pm
Meet the nervously enthusiastic Patol Babu as he prepares for his first film appearance. Madhav's hilarous audition, Reba's rooftop antics, Vicky's world of Bollywood, Dushyant's family secrets, Devika's survival tactics. These characters create a multi-layered masterpiece that examines the joy, pain and transience of fame.
Taramandal is about you and me, about our irrepressible desire to be appreciated and recognised. Inspired by Satyajit Ray's short story, Taramandal weaves personal anecdotes into an iconic Indian tale that celebrates the everyday heroism of quietly believing in your dreams, even as life takes over.
A sparkling, bittersweet comedy, this play dares you to reach for the stars, fall flat, but never give up. For that once-in-a-lifetime moment always comes when you least expect it...
