Mashi Theatre presents: Tales of Birbal - Beeston Library

Beeston Library, Beeston

Time -
Venue Beeston Library

Timeless and treasured fables from the Indian sub-continent
by Sayan Kent from an original concept by Trina Haldar

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.

For children aged 6+. Booking advised.

Running time: 50 minutes

Library members: £3 per child | Accompanying adults FREE
Non-library members: £5 adult or child

Tales of Birbal is presented by Mashi Theatre, in association with The Spark Arts For Children and supported by Z-Arts
