Nirjay Mahindru
 

When dreamer Ravi inherits a stinking run-down Cafe in the back end of Kings Cross, he genuinely believes he's up on his luck. Calling on his two best friends, Suresh (a small-time enterpreneur) and Irvin (an out-of-work actor), Ravi proudly dreams of opening a chic new joint to entice a posher crowd. But their fun and friendship is interrupted by an unexpected visit from a quirky local called Ken, and a surprising discovery...

Dark, punchy and wickedly entertaining, this brilliant black comedy thriller rips apart the sensibilities of three British Asian Londoners striving for definition, as they tumble into a nightmarish sequence of frighteningly bizarre events and behaviour.

Mandragora: King of India

Nirjay Mahindru
 
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 new 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, audaciously running rings around the accepted western view of the early encounters between the English and Indians. Mandragora is a production in Tara Arts' ongoing Borders of Love project, which seeks to explore and dramatise pre-colonial Anglo-Indian relations.
