The Pickle King

A comedy about love, death and preserves.

Rip the lid off a jar of utterly delicious theatre, bursting with wit, wonder and the faint whiff of death.

Sasha, the blind receptionist of the crumbling Empire Hotel, knows she is cursed - everything she loves dies. But when true love finds her, she can’t help falling. One night, Death checks into the hotel.

Belly laughs combine with throat-catching pathos to create a sophisticated modern fable that is “an intelligent and hilarious celebration of human resilience.” - The Scotsman

The Pickle King is Indian Ink’s most awarded play; winning an Edinburgh Fringe First, a record seven nominations at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards and the supreme accolade - Production of the Year.

For our twentieth anniversary, we’ve given this much-loved comedy a contemporary twist to tickle your taste buds. This timeless tale “offers humanity and psychological insight in a package of good plain laughs, luminous performances and brilliant staging.” - Dominion Post
