Guru of Chai
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 at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards New Zealand, Guru of Chai has gone on to sell-out tours around the world.\
