By Sita Brand
An extraordinary personal story mixed with traditional tales.
Be transported to Bombay... dusty, crowded and vibrant…
Welcome to Sita’s world of large families, stubborn hairdos and romantic train journeys. Slowly the light-hearted stories about friendships and games give way to darker more painful memories. Her father’s gruelling exodus at the onset of World War II and later the Indian emergency, precipitating the need to leave India and come to Britain.
Atmospheric, intimate, funny and moving, Memories of an Indian Childhood is an autobiographical show in which Sita’s own experience of growing up in India is intertwined with the folk tales that influenced her childhood and is consummately told by Sita Brand.
Recommended age 10+
