Guru of Chai
Merrigong Theatre Company presents
Guru of Chai

23 Feb 2023 to 25 Feb 2023

Merrigong Theatre Company and Indian Ink Theatre Company are proud to present the outrageously funny and heartbreakingly beautiful romantic thriller Guru of Chai at Wollongong Town Hall from the 23rd to 25th February, 2023. 

A poor chai-wallah (tea-seller) has his life changed forever when a young girl is abandoned at a busy railway station and brings the place to a standstill with the beauty of her singing. 

Winner of three New Zealand Theatre Awards for Best Play, Best Production, and Best Composer, Guru of Chai is an innovative modern fairy tale packed with love and magic. Written by and starring world-renowned actor and writer Jacob Rajan (Belvoir’s The Jungle and the Sea, Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream at Sydney Festival 2023), Guru of Chai brings to life the buck-toothed chameleon and 17 other characters, delivering a serpentine romantic thriller while dispensing dubious spiritual wisdom. 

With a fast-paced and action-packed story, Guru of Chai is a spellbinding tale with the power to move across cultures, classes, and eras to create an utterly entertaining experience for audiences of all ages.
