There are laughs for everyone when Bimbo the baby Elephant introduces himself to Mrs. Lily-a fortune-teller. But the Circus friends are not so happy when Mrs. Lily plays on the simple people's superstitious fears with her tea-cup forecasts. But Joey sorts things out in the end. For as he says 'when logic fails, there's nothing like a little hocus pocus'.

A play cycle by Iain MacCormick.
Starring John Robinson, Peter Wyngarde with Peter Bryant
The action of the play is set in the District of Dalpore, India, in 1947
The fourth and final play in Iain MacCormick's comprehensive portrait The English Family Robinson brings the story up to 1947. It tells the story of Ross's son, Sandy, a commissioner in the Indian Civil Service, who is charged with the duty of handing over his administration at the time of the partition of India, on August 15, of that year.
Unfortunately, his division is bisected by a river which becomes the frontier between the new India and the new Pakistan. He has been ordered to avoid violence at all costs, and the play is about Sandy's struggle to keep the peace, even though in doing so he may be jeopardising his own future.
