Craig Jenkins = Panchatantra & Ramayana
English Storyteller CRAIG JENKINS will tell tales from India in May. Craig tells stories from the Panchatantra (animal teaching tales, India’s Aesop’s fables), and chapters from India’s classic love story, the Ramayana.
Craig wins over audiences across the world with his funny, vibrant, & interactive shows. His animal characters text and use Facebook. His Ramayana has a more respectful tone to bring chapters of this complex epic to life. Nobody tells these tales like Craig, even in India! This is his first visit to our islands. Don’t miss him!
"Witty & hilarious, Jenkins is a totally mesmerizing performer!”
