Forward Flux Productions, with presenting partner Pratidhwani, is thrilled to present A SMALL HISTORY OF AMAL, AGE 7 by Lindsay Joelle, playing at West of Lenin from September 19th – October 6th. This new play has been developed with the playwright after it was presented as part of The Flux Salon series last year. Joelle visited Seattle several times this summer to work with the cast and creative team as Forward Flux worked to bring this immersive production to life. This production will be the first time audiences will see the play fully produced!

About the play:

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. It is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s play, The Post Office (Bengali: Dak Ghar). The play is set in 2006, on the day of the Mumbai train bombings.

75minutes, no intermission.
