When Ajji presents her granddaughter with a beautiful traditional outfit to wear for her 12th birthday, Anjali is stuck. Fearing mockery from her friends, she rejects the outfit as well as her aluminum tiffin lunch carrier as “too Indian.” Anjali is a young girl who has recently moved to Canada from India and is struggling to adjust to her new life while trying to “fit in.” Join Anjali in Beneath the Banyan Tree as she finds the strength to be herself through newfound friendships, family, and the power and richness of her culture.

Ages 5 and up.
“It gripped both children and adults, enabling us to see
both points of view and delight in their reconciliation.”
– Peter Lathan, The British Theatre Guide
“Beneath the Banyan Tree finds a language of
movement that makes it feel fresh and fun and also
makes it universally appealing to kids of every age.”
– Calgary Herald
