"One of the top five theatrical highlights of 2013!" BRISTOL CULTURE
The Tiger & the Moustache
Where do we come from and what makes us who we are? Is our destiny written in the stars or stamped in a passport?
Born on the very first day of a new nation, Hashi, the girl who always smiles, grew up surrounded by flying tigers in the Sunderban jungles. In The Tiger and the Moustache, Saikat Ahamed traces the journey of Hashi, his mother, and the merging nation of Bangladesh.
Travel with him, as he slides in and out of time from the agonies of Partition in 1947 right up to the present day, as we board fishing boats up the Megna River and rickshaws along the dusty roads of Dacca.
From East London to East Bengal, taking in Birmingham, Germany and Glasgow, the story of Bangladesh is woven together through storytelling, theatre, live music, dance and a healthy amount of humour.
Presented by Saikat Ahamed
