About My Grandma's A Walrus

My Grandma’s a Walrus is a one-woman play about Naira, a mixed-race girl, deemed too white to be Indian and too brown to be English. Set within a hectic, colourful, Indian wedding, we follow the relationship between Naira and her grandmother, Chaiji. Naira speaks only English and Chaiji speaks only Hindi, however this doesn’t hinder their relationship and rather poses the question: “Is language integral to love?” A piece of storytelling told by Naira and an ensemble of puppeteers, who create a world of flying carpets, cigarette stubs, magic shoes and mad aunties! Dirty Mango Theatre Company is a graduating company from the East15 Acting and Contemporary Theatre Course. The show has just won The Space Launchpad Award and is supported by the Epping Forest District Council’s Creativity Award. SWK Fest is a festival of theatre that missed out on being staged last year. Twelve events. A different show every night. All taking place in our socially distanced auditorium. See two SWK Fest shows for £25. See three SWK Fest shows for £30. Age Recommendation: 10+
