PAKISTAN HIGH COMMISSION LONDON in partnership with Wagging Tongues Productions Ltd presents Jungly Jadoogar, a journey through traditional South Asian fairy tales with a modern twist. The theatre play is a mystical adventure of two brothers, Billoo and Gulloo, on their fantastical voyage to rescue Prince Jalfrezi from the clutches of the evil sorceress, Jungly Jadoogar. It is an enthralling family show with swashbuckling Princess Gulfam, story weaver Dadi 007, magic carpets, luminous flying fish and the fiercely magnificent dragon, Fifi. Mariam Majid, writer and director comments, “Jungly Jadoogar was birthed from the remnants of memories of Cassette Kahani, Alif Lailah and the magical
land of Kaukaaf. Jungly Jadoogar, an English language play, aims to recreate the sense of wonderment from my childhood and makes it relevant for our younger generation. More than just keeping with the tradition, the story telling is tailored to function in the modern world as a source of inspiration and entertainment.”
The performance involves a multi-cultural line-up of professional actors as well as experienced management and crew. With its humour, visual effects and fast paced story line, Jungly Jadoogar is aimed at providing an entertaining experience for adults and children alike. It forms part of the Muslim Lifestyle Show 2016 being held at Olympia London on 30th April and 1st May at 11.30am.
