Mandragora - King of India archiveNirjay Mahindru s witty first play takes its audience on a thrilling flight of fantasy to India. As his Queen gives birth to an heir, King Mandragora s kingdom is plagued by a terrifying series of omens. Flying fish and fiery peacocks can be explained, but who are the alien creatures with chalky-white skin and what do they want? This play creates a vivid world, populated by kings, soothsayers and clowns, threatened in a clash between old and new civilisations. Mandragora is the most inventive new play since Salman Rushdie s Midnight s Children hit the bookshops. Mandragora also marks the latest production in the exceptional Tara s ongoing Borders of Love project, which seeks to explore and dramatise pre-colonial Anglo-Indian relations.
