The Serpent Kings Daughter
January 13th @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm£8
Live performance by The GuestHouse Storytellers & Friends.
Seductive, funny, tragic, philosophical and horrific … this collection of colourful teaching tales from ancient India is contained within a framing story about King Suryakanta, a misogynist who falls in love with the dangerous and clever Princess Anangaraga, daughter of the Serpent King. Each story ends with a riddle that she has to solve. If she fails to solve even one, she has to marry him. If she solves them all, he becomes her slave for life.
Event takes place in the Studio, guests are welcome to bring a cushion.
