Tales of Birbal

Mashi Theatre

How many crows are there in my land? Which came first the chicken or the egg? What is the fastest thing in the world? Only Birbal knows…

Birbal was a poet and author, but was more widely esteemed for his wit and wisdom in solving problems. Known as one of the Navaratnas, or nine jewels of the Mogul Emperor Akbar, many would travel from far and wide to present Birbal with a challenge, to which he would always have an intelligent and amusing response.

Featuring live music, the players stumble across an audience in a man-pulled rickshaw and begin to unpack these ancient tales. Akin to Aesops fables, these stories are now presented to a new audience of families and children.

This show is part of the Big Imaginations Children and Family Festival 19 October – 5 November 2017
