Memories of an Indian Childhood with Sita Brand @ Halton Mill
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm

Memories of an Indian Childhood

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.

Advance tickets £10/£8. On the door £12/£10

STOP!

Stop what you’re doing and read this very carefully. Your life may depend on it…

This critically acclaimed, multi five star awarded hilarious comedy will be presented by Professor Abraham Van Helsing and his three idiotic actors as they stage a life-changing, theatrical production surrounding the true events of Dracula. Will they pull if off? It’s highly unlikely!

With four actors playing over forty characters and directed by one of the UK’s most exciting comedy directors, John Nicholson, Dracula: The Bloody Truth will make you die laughing.

Devon based, award winning Le Navet Bete are committed to creating hilarious, physical and family friendly comedy using creative and engaging storytelling.

After bringing Dick Tracy to The Dukes three years ago we welcome them back with great anticipation.
