Haider’s father has passed, he is the next in line as the ruler of Darokhand but the King’s right-hand man Azreal and his wife Lady Zohra have their eyes on the throne. As he mourns his father, his trust in his dearest friends is put to the test as he prepares for battle with an unknown, supernatural force threatening to destroy the kingdom from within.

Tribe’s homage to Shakespeare, originally staged in 2016 to celebrate the 400th death anniversary of the Bard. Through the merging of 6 of his most popular plays and an amalgamation of characters, a new world was created fusing elements of Gothic and Mughal architecture and style creating the perfect backdrop of this decolonial approach to these supposed ‘quintessentially British’ works.
