Going West Books and Writers Festival 2009 presents Indian Ink Theatre Company’s internationally-acclaimed play Krishnan's Dairy at the Playhouse Theatre, Glen Eden for five performances only from Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29 August.
Krishnan’s Dairy takes two of the most universal Indian clichés – the Taj Mahal and the corner store – and fuses them into a funny and touching love story. Gobi and Zina Krishnan have moved to New Zealand in search of a better life for themselves and their child. They work hard and keep their dreams stacked on the shelves of their struggling business – Krishnan's Dairy.
Woven into the story of Gobi and Zina is the epic tale of the Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world and an enduring testament to the love of one man for his wife. A love story unfolds behind the counter with hilarious and deeply moving consequences for the hopeful, vulnerable lives of this immigrant shopkeeper and his wife.
The play, starring Jacob Rajan, debuted in 1997 and since then has played to more than 47,000 people, consistently receiving rave reviews and sell out houses.
Krishnan’s Dairy is part of Going West Books and Writers Festival 2009.
“This is a piece of absolute enchantment… Jacob Rajan is extraordinary. Playing all parts with lightening switches of masks, he unearths the profoundly touching comedy of these hopeful, vulnerable lives.” – The Scotsman
“Such is the power of Jacob Rajan’s ground-breaking work: it changes the way you see the world… such riveting theatre that you would have to have a heart of reinforced concrete not to be captivated… [Rajan] is a stage natural, economical in movement, fluid in gesture, never in-your-face but unforgettably in-your-presence… all New Zealanders should see it.” – NZ Listener
