19 October 2014, 7.30pm – 9.30pm
Presented in association with Writing East Midlands and Jay Bird as part of the Nottingham Festival of Words.
When poet Daljit Nagra was a boy in the 1970s, his relatives told him stories of Rama's quest to rescue his wife Sita from her abduction by Raavana, Lord of the Underworld.
Versions of these stories – The Ramayana – have enchanted audiences across the Eastern world for 1000s of years. Daljit's adaptation (published recently by Faber) is retold for a modern multi-cultural, multi-faith audience.
Now he brings it to the stage. Tender technicolour love scenes and demon battles are brought to life by one man and his voice: wild words and specially commissioned illustrations projected through space. At the height of the tale, a monkey army goes to war. One man on stage can't represent a million monkeys ... so you, the audience, will be drafted in to help.
Admission: £10.00 (£7.00 concession)
Age range: 11yrs+
