The fun adventure is set in Sunderbans, the land between India and Bangladesh, which is home to Royal Bengal tigers, honey bees and honey-collectors. It takes the audiences on an enthralling and playful journey into the jungle to discover how they all learn to live and play together. This imaginative production features giant bees and tigers who want to lend a ‘paw’ as well as honey collectors who wear fierce mask on their heads as the only protection for travelling into the dangerous jungle.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member Communities and Wellbeing, Cheshire West & Chester Council said: “Mashi Theatre brings the Lion Salt Works an exciting and imaginative play for young audiences featuring adventure song, dance, puppetry and music by award-winning composer Arun Ghosh. This life-enhancing play also explores the life of some of the most precious but endangered species in the jungle.”

The play runs for 50 minutes (no interval) and there is free parking and access to the Museum’s industrially-themed play area.
