Mandragora takes its audience on a thrilling flight of fantasy to an imaginary India. As his Queen gives birth to an heir, King Mandragora’s kingdom is plagued by a terrifying series of omens. Flying fish and fiery peacocks can be explained, but who are the alien creatures with chalkywhite skin and what do they want? This fast and funny new production creates a vivid world, populated by kings, soothsayers and clowns, threatened in a clash between old and new civilisations. Sit back and enjoy this rollercoaster ride through Tara’s parallel universe! “The subject matter is fascinating, the direction imaginative, the performers tireless.” The Guardian
