Three Sat Under the Banyan Tree
Fantasic For Families
  • Michael Wharley/Rebecca Pitt

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 leopard come vibrantly to life, with masks, movement and music.

Polka is delighted to be co-producing with Tara Arts the first-ever stage adaptation of The Panchatantra in the UK.

  • Relaxed Performance
This event is ticketed
  • Theatre

introduce your family to the Ancient, Indian Panchatantra tales. Brought vibrantly to life through masks, movement and music.
