Become an active participant

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.


Crammed into the back room of a local dairy, you will be an active participant in the rapidly unfolding comic, odd couple drama of the careworn, widowed shopkeeper, Mrs Krishnan, and her boarder, the well-intentioned but overzealous college student, James.

When James organises a surprise party for his landlady to observe Onam, the most important Festival of Kerala, he unwittingly brings everyone in the room face-to-face with its true meaning – a celebration of death and rebirth.

In the spirit of great parties everywhere: laughter abounds, tears are shed, stories are told, wine and secrets are spilled, food is cooked and shared, a mess is made, arguments flare, love is found, faith is restored, wonderful music plays, tables are danced on and strangers become friends.

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.
