with Pariah Khan

Stifled by life in middle-class India, Krishnan is a young man desperate to see more of the world.
On a journey of self-discovery he visits the exotic island of Great Britain to & ‘find himself’. What does Krishnan’s journey teach him about the world? What might he learn about himself? And what happens when he falls in love with a native?

A shrewd and bitingly funny send-up of the ‘spiritual journey’ ★★★★ – PubTheatres Magazine
That Pariah Khan is a smart man. It’s a jaunty hour, full of well-timed gags yet beneath the joviality, there lies an acerbic touch. ★★★★ – Kris Hallett, Bristol Post reviewer
