On behalf of Indian Ink we thank you for your support.

 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 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.  


**Due to the nationwide Level 4 Lockdown announced by the Government on Tuesday August 17th, this event has been rescheduled to the dates detailed on this page. All original tickets are valid for the rescheduled dates.
