Starring Kalyani Nagarajan and Justin Rogers
Step into the back room of Mrs Krishnan’s dairy 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.
Ticketing for Mrs Krishnan’s Party is a key part of the audience experience. The show is like a party and the audience are the guests.
We have come up with fun titles for the five different ticket types for the show, each of which are playfully named around the sort of people you might see at a party.
Masks are highly recommended.
