Based on the international best-selling novel The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir Who Got Trapped in an Ikea Wardrobe

This calamitous cross-border comedy will take you on a wild ride of coincidence and circumstance.

Aja, a young fakir (magician) from the streets of India arrives in Paris in search of his past and his future. He falls head-over-heels for Marie, whom he meets amongst the cabinets and couches in an IKEA store, and plans to meet up with her again the next day. When he accidentally gets stuck in a wardrobe that is shipped in the night to the UK, Aja finds himself on the run from border police and bandits alike. As he tries to make his way back to the city of love, Aja finds himself crossing many borders and meeting many colourful characters.

Featuring magical realism and musical numbers,The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir is sheer joy from start to finish. Perfect for the whole family!
