Wyndham Cultural Centre audiences are set to be transported to a distant land when The Guru of Chai comes to town.
Described as a “flawless” and “cleverly constructed, full of melodramatic twists and humour asides”, the theatre show is sure to be popular.
Set amid the chaos of a bustling Bangalore railway station, The Guru of Chai tells the story of a poor chai-wallah, or tea-seller, who has his life changed forever when an abandoned girl brings the place to a standstill with the beauty of song.
Wyndham City’s Arts, Culture and Heritage portfolio holder, Cr Tony Hooper, said the award-winning show would be playing at the Wyndham Cultural Centre for a very limited time.
“If you’re fan of movies like Slumdog Millionaire, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Life of Pi, then you should definitely check out The Guru of Chai,” Cr Hooper said.
The show has won a slew of awards, including two Edinburgh Fringe Awards, three Production of the Year awards and Best Play, Best Composer and Best Actor at the Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards in New Zealand.
The Guru of Chai will only be in Wyndham for two days, so make sure you see it while you can. The Guru of Chai will be at the Wyndham Cultural Centre, 177 Watton St, Werribee, from 8pm on Thursday, 15 and Friday, 16 March.
