Asara and the Sea-Monstress comes to Albany Theatre!


May 26, 2014 by Mojisola Adebayo

Asara and the Sea-Monstress is a play I wrote for children and families through Birmingham REP and Unicorn, with dramaturgy by Caroline Jester. Asara tells the story of a left-handed girl growing up in a mythical right-handed Kingdom. The play draws on folk tales and myths from Nigeria and Scandinavia, with cartoon animation, puppetry, music, dance and British Sign Language and a cast of 10, this show is my most ambitious yet! I’m delighted to announce that Albany are presenting a work-in-progress performance on August 1st as part of Hatched. Watch this space for booking details!
