Indian Ink Theatre Co.
Guru of Chai
Wednesday, November 2
Student Life Center Ballroom
New Zealand’s award-winning Indian Ink Theatre Company has established a reputation for offering psychological insight in a package of good plain laughs, luminous performances and brilliant staging. The company makes its U.S. debut with The Guru of Chai, a story that connects the lives of a poor chaiwallah (tea seller), a young girl, a policeman in love, and a disreputable poet — all played out against the backdrop of the contradictions of technology and ancient gods in modern day India.
