"An inventive, heartfelt and bittersweet treat Krishnan's Dairy might just be a feel-good morsel to restore jaded theatre palates." - SPH, The Straits Times
Krishnan's Dairy takes two of the most universal Indian clichés – the Taj Mahal and the corner store - and fuses them into a funny and touching love story.
Gobi and Zina Krishnan have moved to New Zealand in search of a better life for themselves and their child. They work hard and keep their dreams stacked on the shelves of their struggling business – Krishnan's Dairy.
Woven into their story is the epic tale of the Taj Mahal, one of the wonders of the world and an enduring testament to the love of one man for his wife. A love story unfolds behind the counter with hilarious and deeply moving consequences for the hopeful, vulnerable lives of this immigrant shopkeeper and his wife.
You'll never look at your corner store in the same way again.
