Three Sat Under The Banyan Tree

Running Time 1 hour 30 mins.

By Shamser Sinha

Animal tales brought vibrantly to life with wonderous masks, movement and music.
Based on The Panchatantra – India’s Aesop’s Fables
For ages 7 – 12 years

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.
