Total theatre which offers humanity and psychological insight in a package of good plain laughs, luminous performances and brilliant staging.Dominion Post, NZ
The contradictions of modern India with its iPhones and ancient gods come alive in this outrageously funny and heartbreakingly beautiful romantic thriller. A poor chaiwallah (tea seller) 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.
The Sydney Morning Herald picked Guru of Chai as one of the theatrical highlights of 2010 and the NZ Listener named it their Feelgood Production of the Year.
