Indian Ink Theatre Company: Mrs. Krishnan's Party

You’re invited!

Step into the back room of Mrs. Krishnan’s corner shop where garlands decorate the ceiling, music flows, and Mrs. Krishnan is throwing a party like no other. Food simmers on the stove, laughter abounds, and strangers become friends in this joyous celebration of life.

Watch the actors juggle cooking, music, and guests in an unfolding drama where no two nights are the same. Mrs. Krishnan's Party has critics raving and audiences leaping to their feet in appreciation.

The show's generous spirit offers a timely reminder that live theatre is a gift which engenders connection, sharing, and celebration of community.

So different, so original, so creatively fresh and so much fun no one wanted to go home
