"Flawless...cleverly constructed, full of melodramatic twists and humourous asides."

Sydney Morning Herald

The contradictions of modern India with its iPhones and ancient gods come alive in this outrageously funny and heartbreakingly beautiful production. A poor chai-wallah has his life changed forever when a young girl is abandoned at a busy railway station and brings the place to a standstill with the beauty of her singing.

Our Guru (Jacob Rajan), is a buck-toothed chameleon, channelling 17 characters and leaping to multiple locations, delivering a serpentine romantic thriller while dispensing dubious spiritual wisdom. He is by turns charming, loathsome and absurdly profound. Laughter, heartbreak and enlightenment abound – not to mention the killer live soundtrack provided by his mute side-kick, Dave (Adam Ogle).

Scooping Best Play, Best Actor and Best Composer, Guru of Chai has gone on to sell out tours around the world.

Written by Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis. Directed by Justin Lewis.

Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Indian Ink Theatre Company
