Three Sat Under The Banyan Tree

A Tara Arts and Polka Theatre production

Three Sat Under the Banyan Tree

by Shamser Sinha

Animal tales brought vibrantly to life with wonderous masks, movement and music.

Based on The Panchatantra – India’s Aesop’s Fables

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.

The first-ever stage adaptation of The Panchatantra in the UK, directed by Tara Arts’ Artistic Director Jatinder Verma MBE with design by Claudia Mayer.

For ages 7 – 12 years
