Fringe First – The Pickle King: Thought-Provoking Theatre
By: Mark Brown, Fringe First
Fringe First, August 21, 2003.
New Zealand company Indian Ink return to the Fringe with a love story inspired by, of all things, the story of LG Pathak, founder of the great Pathak pickle empire. “Combining outstanding masks, subtly stylised physical performance and emotive comic humour, Pickle is further evidence of Indian Ink’s extraordinary capacity for turning immense and serious stories into the most affectionate and thought-provoking theatre,” wrote Mark Brown on Wednesday last week.
