TARAMANDAL (DUBLIN THEATRE FESTIVAL)

By The Tadpole Repertory
Presented by Dublin Theatre Festival
Tickets €20 - 25
Taramandal is based on Satyajit Ray’s short story, Patol Babu, Film Star, which tells of a chance opportunity to fulfil a lifelong dream.PERFORMANCE DATES, TICKETS & INFORMATION
At fifty or so, Patol Babu has led a rather unglamorous life. His one passion, acting, has never really amounted to anything other than a few theatre performances in his local community group as a child or at school. So when one day the possibility of a part in a Bengali film opens up, Patol embraces the chance with open arms.
Humorous and melancholy, Taramandal tells stories that seem to be about people we have met and known in our own lifetime. Devised and performed by The Tadpole Repertory, one of Delhi’s most prominent and prolific theatre groups, this is a play which captures the sincerity and ardour of human dreams and the courage and determination it takes to follow them.
"Compelling stories of dreams and failure and the resurrection of the spirit" The Hindu
Performed in English, Hindi and Bengali with English surtitles.
There will be a post-show discussion with Neel Chaudhuri and members of the company following the performance on 9 October.
