The Tiger and the Moustache archiveWhere do we come from and what makes us who we are? Is our destiny written in the stars or stamped in a passport? We all have a journey to make, stupid girl, even you. 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, local actor and writer Saikat Ahamed (TFT's Cinderella: A Fairytale, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and Bristol Old Vic's Treasure Island and Peter Pan) traces the journey of Hashi, his mother, and the emerging 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, boarding fishing boats up the Meghna River and rickshaws along the dusty roads of Dacca. From East London to East Bengal, taking in Birmingham, Germany and Glasgow, this story of Bangladesh is woven together through storytelling, theatre, live music, dance and a healthy amount of humour.
