Basically the winner gets to see two critically acclaimed shows within the month of July!

Guru of Chai (10-21 July)

The contradictions of modern India with its iPhones and ancient Gods collide in this outrageously funny and heartbreakingly beautiful romantic thriller. A poor chaiwallah (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.

The award winning story teller and actor keeps the audience enthralled as he becomes 7 sisters, a policeman, a poet, a series of gangsters and a poor chai-wallah in this heartbreakingly beautiful, yet outrageously funny story of love, loss and enlightenment. Guru of Chai has also enchanted international audiences since its 2011 American premier in Los Angeles; receiving high praise from audiences calling it “the best show in 10 years.”

"Flawless...Cleverly constructed, full of melodramatic twists and humourous asides." Sydney Morning Herald

"The Guru of Chai is nothing short of genius." Time Out Singapore

Krishnan's Dairy (25 July – 4 Aug)

For over a decade this play has enthralled audiences here and across the world with its timeless, hilarious and profoundly touching love story.
Recent arrivals to New Zealand, Gobi and Zina Krishnan have moved in search of a better life for themselves and their child. Working hard and keeping their dreams stacked on the shelves of their struggling corner shop. Woven into their story is the epic tale of the Taj Mahal – one of the wonders of the world and a testament to the love of one man for his wife.

"Such is the power of Jacob Rajan’s ground breaking work: it changes the way you see the world ... all New Zealanders should see it." NZ Listener
