Description

Mukul & Ghetto Tigers and Tamarind Theatre Company presents Oscar & the Lady in Pink

Bangla I 60 mins


Narrator Oscar, a ten-year-old leukaemia patient, is all alone in hospital with little contact from his heartbroken parents who find his terminal illness too difficult to deal with. Feeling isolated, withdrawn and 'in the dark', he is touched and surprised by the arrival of a hospital volunteer known as the Pink Lady. Blunt and irreverent but with a warmth and honesty that touches Oscar's heart, she helps him live out his final days with strength, positivity and courage.

Mukul and Ghetto Tigers is an east London theatre company staging both contemporary productions and fresh takes on the classics, both western and sub-continental.

The group believes that apart from being compelling live entertainment theatre is the alternative voice of exploration and even dissent in a democratic society.

It aims to mentor and nurture fresh talent alongside veteran artists in their respective fields.
