STG Presents Indian Ink Theatre Company - Mrs. Krishnan's Party at Erickson Theatre November 15 - 24, 2019 as a part of our 2019-2020 performing arts season.

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.

Watch the actors juggle cooking, music and guests in an unfolding drama where no two nights are the same. Kalyani Nagarajan and Justin Rogers have reviewers singing their praises and audiences leaping to their feet in appreciation.

The extraordinary artistic partnership of Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis is now comfortably in its second decade. Together, they have created a series of remarkable theatre productions of intimate scale, each one reminding us of the simple truths of life.

Indian Ink blend western theatrical traditions with eastern flavours in pursuit of ‘serious laughter.’ Live music, heightened theatricality, humour, pathos and great storytelling are hallmarks of their work.

Indian Ink has won multiple awards in New Zealand and two Fringe First Awards at Edinburgh. The company’s international successes include tours throughout Australia and the USA, as well as sell out seasons in Singapore, Germany, India and the UK.

“We aim to make theatre that is beautiful, funny, sad and true. We go to the theatre to be transported by a great story and to enjoy characters that live large in our imaginations. We want the experience to leave an indelible imprint on your hearts. That’s why we’re called Indian Ink!”
