A stories and songs show about being caught between two worlds, the Muppets, and finding solace in music
It’s 1987, and Polash is about to have his 12-year-old mind blown seeing The Blues Brothers at the Valhalla cinema. From New Delhi to Camberwell, this kid has seen a lot, but he’s never seen anything like this. People are wearing sunglasses at night! And everyone knows all the songs!
His parents may have had their adventures on the hippy trail, but it’s the 80s now baby. Polash is about to take you on a musical journey that’s for you, me, everybody!
He may even be on a mission from God.
Content Warnings: The current script includes the word “motherfucker”. Once.
