Clocking Off Late Presents: The Tinku Diaries

The Tinku Diaries

The Tinku Diaries

The Tinku Diaries is an interactive journey of discovery, taking participants deeper into the ‘make believe’ Steampunk world of Clockwork Watch, a story told through live events, graphic novels, an online newspaper, and film.

This will be our second immersive theatrical performance hosted as part of the National Maritime Museum’s Longitude Season.

Meet Tinku, wife of eminent scientist, Chan Ranbir, the man who put ‘Great’ back into Great Britain by designing a kinetic heart to power the country’s most lucrative export – the Clockwork Servant.

Uprooted from her home in Calcutta, Tinku ‘toes the line’, and keeps up appearances on behalf of Chan and his main benefactor the East India Company. With her son, Janav, away at boarding school, Tinku is left to her own devices in a very unhappy home.

Step into the immersive world of Clockwork Watch. Hear about the ambitions of the East India Company, and search out the intimate secrets of a woman abandoned by a husband rumoured to have a God complex.

This performance features Suna Dasi as Tinku Ranbir, Phillip Whiteman as Thomas, and Ziazan as The Oracle. The Tinku Diaries is produced and directed by Yomi Ayeni.
