Mister Jeejeebhoy and the Birds
Curated by: Gillo Repertory Theatre
Presented by Gillo Repertory Theatre in association with G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture
Mister Jeejeebhoy and the Birds is an interactive play based on Anitha Balachandran's book by the same name.
Two siblings, one very strange Aunt, and a flock of escaped birds... Magic and mayhem comes in unexpected shapes and sizes to one small corner of a very big city.
Each part of this spectacular story will delight and amaze children. Together with the delightfully quirky text, this unique story brings to life the wonders of a city and the world seen through the eyes of these two - rather special - young children.
