Event Description

Take a wild ride to paradise with Indian Ink’s powerful new play about impermanence - of life, love…. and ice cream! 

This glorious production is inspired by Ernest Becker’s Pulitzer prize winning “Denial of Death,” and the vibrant, life–filled chaos of India’s most cosmopolitan city, Mumbai.  

Jacob Rajan (Guru of Chai) delivers a dazzling solo performance as he channels seven characters, weaving the afterlife and a dash of Bollywood disco into the real-life mystery of India’s vanishing vultures. 

A man trying desperately to avoid death is flung between limbo and his past where a rebellious young woman holds the key that may guide him to paradise. 

Infused with serious laughter, exquisite puppetry and inspired sound design this show is guaranteed to blow your mind and melt your heart. 

Written by: Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis


Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Indian Ink Theatre Company as part of the 2023 FAC Season
