Mauritian Tales


SUITABLE FOR:9-13 years, KS2/3

Touring UK schools spring term, 26 January - 20 March 2015. In simple French for 9-13 year olds, KS2/3

Magic, mischief, wisdom and wonder encompass these two folk tales from the island of Mauritius.  The tales draw on a wealth of Mauritian folklore, steeped in a history that brings together Madagascan, Indian, African and European cultures.

In L’Arbre aux Gâteaux Tizan, a boy with a coin, two cakes and a magic tree encounters a hungry witch and a heroic cat.  How will the witch tempt Tizan down from the tree of cakes?  Will Tizan be on the witch’s menu for lunch?  Can the cat save the day?  All will be revealed…..

L’Homme au Banjo is a spooky tale that takes place on the night of the full moon when a banjo player looking for a party gets more than he bargained for.  All becomes clear with the rising of the sun.

“It will have you rolling about screeching with delight and willingly calling out in French.”
Teacher, West Sussex;

“I thought the plays were brilliant and well acted.  I had a great time and I would like to see more plays again.”
Pupil, Colchester 

“An enthralling, highly educational performance.  The visual effects were tremendous.”
Teacher, Northumberland
