Indian Ink Theatre Company
"An inventive, heartfelt and bitter-sweet treat
Krishnan's Dairy might just be a feel-good morsel
to restore jaded theatre palates."
- SPH Straits Time
Krishnan's Dairy takes two of the most universal Indian cliche
- the Taj Mahal and the corner store -
and fuses them into a funny and touching love story.
Gobi and Zina Krishnan have moved to New Zealand
in search of a better life for themselves and their child.
They work hard and keep their dreams stacked on the shelves of
their struggling corner shop - Krishnan's Dairy.
Woven into their story is the epic tale of the Taj Mahal,
one of the wonders of the world and an
enduring testament to the love of one man for his wife.
A love story unfolds behind the counter with hilarious and
deeply moving consequences for the hopeful, vulnerable lives of
this immigrant shopkeeper and his wife.
While it was merely an hour-long one-man show
My heart was with the character(s).
I felt love.
Gobi and Zina : King and Taj Mahal
Unexpressed love that felt so close to home, contrasted with
Love that was blatantly expressed into a wonder of the world.
Still love, still love still.
