June Swaner Gates Concert Hall
Step into the back room of Mrs Krishnan’s convenience store 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. This intimate show, where the audience will be seated on the stage, has the actors mingling with the patrons in an unfolding drama where no two nights of the show are the same.
“A joyful, highly theatrical celebration.” – New Zealand Herald
“I feel revived. I don’t know when I’ve left the theatre feeling so refreshed and renewed.” – Reviews Vancouver
“So different, so original, so creatively fresh and so much fun no one wanted to go home.” – Waikato Times
