Buta Festival presents an Aloff Theatre production of THE TALES OF MALIK-MAMMED a new comedy by Chris Bartlett for all the family inspired by the folk tales of Azerbaijan, directed by Andy McQuade.
Buta Festival 2015 and Aloff Theatre bring the magic of the folk tales of Azerbaijan to London in this fun-filled adaptation written by Chris Bartlett at Chelsea Theatre.
Welcome to the magical fairytale world of ancient Azerbaijan! Suitable for allages, The Tales of Malik-Mammed is an adventure-packed comedy inspired by Azerbaijan’s centuries-old storytelling tradition. The magician El leads you into a magic world of yesteryore when shahs ruled and dragons roamed and where the quick-witted prince Malik-Mammed sets out to prove that he’s a match for his overbearing big brothers. Along the way he encounters all manner of adventures, fighting fearsome ‘Dev’ ogres and man-eating dragons and saving damsels in distress. Along the way he discovers strange worlds and lots of treasure and makes an unexpected friend in the Fabulous Phoenix – all the while learning what it means to stand up for himself!
Directed by Andy McQuade, the cast features Mark Shaer as El the Magnificent, Sam Watson as Prince Malik-Mammed, with George Collie and Eloise Black playing a gallery of roles between them including ogres, shahs, dragons and damsels in distress.
There’s a free resource workpack about Azerbaijan’s fairytales, traditions and culture for everyone, and a free post-show talk on Friday, Monday and Tuesday (March 6, 9-10).
