The contradictions of modern India, with its iPhones and ancient gods come alive in this outrageously funny and heartbreakingly beautiful romantic thriller from one of New Zealand’s most successful theatre companies, Indian Ink.

A poor chai-wallah (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.

World-renowned actor and writer Jacob Rajan finally comes to Wollongong, bringing his famous Guru character to life – a buck-toothed chameleon, he channels 17 characters and leaps to multiple locations, delivering a serpentine romantic thriller while dispensing dubious spiritual wisdom.

Award-winning, heartstring-pulling and outrageously funny, with a vibrant musical score performed live, Guru of Chai is an innovative modern fairy tale packed with love and magic.
