Krishnan's Dairy

Take a look behind the counter of the corner dairy and discover a love story as wondrous as the Taj Mahal.

Gobi and Zina Krishnan have come to New Zealand in search of a better life. They keep their dreams stacked on the shelf of their suburban dairy but now Zina wants to go back to India.

Jacob Rajan charms and thrills as he juggles multiple characters in a career defining performance that shows why he's won multiple best actor awards.

Laughter, live music and exquisite masks make this a magical evening like no other. Winner of the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe First Award and two Production of the Year Awards in New Zealand, this iconic play is much loved by people of all ages.

"A piece of absolute enchantment" - The Scotsman
