Written by Lindsay Joelle, and Produced by Forward Flux Productions & presenting partner Pratidhwani, A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7 is an immersive experience that is perfect for the entire family. Audiences will travel to Mumbai, India, where they will meet Amal, a 7 year old boy who uses his explorer’s heart and a little Bollywood magic to fight the god of death. Exploring universal issues through the eyes of a small boy, this imaginative play weaves together heartache and triumph as it invites us to examine our connection to family, our city, and the world. The play is set in 2006, on the day of the Mumbai train bombings. It is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s play, The Post Office (Bengali: Dak Ghar) Presented as part of The Flux Salon series last year, this new play was developed with the playwright as Joelle visited Seattle several times this summer to work with the cast and creative team to bring this immersive production to life.
