Mrs. Krishnan’s Party
Canadian premiere. Indians throw crazy parties. Heard of Diwali? A million lamps floating on a river and fireworks to wake the dead. Heard of Holi? An explosion of colour and joy and massive dry cleaning bills. How about Onam? No? It’s the harvest festival, and this one could be the craziest of them all! Mrs. Krishnan’s boarder, an overzealous wannabe DJ named James, has invited a few friends into the back room of the corner shop as a special surprise to celebrate Onam and the return home of her son. But when strangers turn up (the audience) and settle in, Mrs. K has no choice but to throw the party of her life!
Over one joyous evening, Mrs. Krishnan’s Party magically transforms strangers into friends with a little Daal, a little dancing, and some serious laughs.
From the creators of The Elephant Wrestler comes a spontaneous theatrical celebration you won’t soon forget!
