Indians throw crazy parties. Heard of Diwali? A million lamps floating on a river and fireworks to wake the dead. Heard of Holi? An explosion of color and joy and a massive dry-cleaning bill? Heard about Onam? It could be the craziest of them all. Indian Ink Theatre Company bridges cultures and expands boundaries with this utterly disarming comedy that seats the audience around the dining table and at the kitchen bench in the back room of an Indian-run convenience store. Now that her son is grown up, Mrs. Krishnan is thinking of selling the shop. It’s Onam, a time to celebrate life, death, and rebirth, and Mrs. Krishnan has to throw the party of her life.
