Little Lyric Spring-Summer 2022 Season at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre features the very best children’s and family shows.
Jabala & The Jinn by award-winning writer Asif Khan is a funny and endearing story for the whole family about a little girl’s playful and adventurous encounter with a very cheeky Jinn.
We’re in Bradford. It’s been a few months since Jabala’s beloved Mum died. Dad is a brilliant father, but it’s an effort to get to school on time every day. One morning, she hears a voice replying to her in Arabic – but no one’s there. Could it be Mum? Has she imagined it?
With the help of a new refugee boy at school – a Shakespeare enthusiast called Munir – Jabala summons a Jinn. But this is no ordinary Jinn and nothing like the ones she’s heard about in her grandma’s stories. Jabala is in for a big surprise! As the day of Eid approaches, events take a drastic turn and Jabala is forced to make some difficult decisions. Will things come together in time for the celebration.
Running time: 50 mins, for ages 5 – 12.
