Mandragora: King of India

Nirjay Mahindru

PaperBack (15 Apr 2004)

Nirjay Mahindru's witty play takes it audience on a thrilling flight of fantasy to India. 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?

Mandragora creates a vivid world, populated by kings, soothsayers and clowns, threatened in a clash between old and new civilisations. Inventive and audacious, it runs rings round the accepted western view of the early encounters between the English and Indians.
