Black Theatre Live


Three Sat Under The Banyan Tree

A TARA ARTS and POLKA THEATRE co-production

Three Sat Under The Banyan Tree by Shamser Sinha

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

For ages 7 - 12 years

If kindness is not shown to friends in pain,

What use in life, what gain?

How can three ignorant princes learn to rule wisely? How did a crow, a mouse, a turtle and a deer become inseparable friends? And how did the jackal fool the lion?

For the first time ever, Shamser Sinha brings India’s extraordinary collection of fables, The Panchatantra - India’s most frequently translated literary work - to the stage. A cast of 3 explore the good life through a range of fabulous animal characters.
