Written by Shamser Sinha
Near the foothills of the Himalayas, three orphans open a magical book under a Banyan tree. They were told the book wouldn’t give them answers but they’d learn from it, so they stir a pot of milk and watch as three stories of the forest rise from the pages. Stories of headstrong crows, a mongoose who wants a family, and a brave lion come vibrantly to life, with masks, movement and music.
Tara Arts is delighted to be co-producing with Polka Theatre for the first-ever stage adaptation of The Panchatantra in the UK.
