How about Onam? No? It’s the harvest festival, and this one could be the craziest of them all! Mrs. Krishnan’s boarder, an overzealous wannabe DJ named James, has invited a few friends into the back room of the corner shop as a special surprise to celebrate Onam and the return home of her son. But when strangers turn up (the audience) and settle in, Mrs. K has no choice but to throw the party of her life!
Over one joyous evening, Mrs Krishnan’s Party magically transforms strangers into friends with a little Daal, a little dancing, and some serious laughs.
From the creators of The Elephant Wrestler comes a spontaneous theatrical celebration you won’t soon forget!
Don’t be late for the party! No latecomers admitted.
