Singapore Repertory Theatre

Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream

16 – 26 May 2024 | KC Arts Centre - Home of STC

From the producers of The Guru of Chai and Krishnan’s Dairy  comes a new heartwarming comedy! 

Take a wild ride to paradise with STC and Indian Ink’s sensational new play about life's impermanence—where love, ice cream, and the mysteries of death intertwine in unexpected ways. 

Kutisar is dead, and lost between paradise and hell. On an existential post-mortem journey to correct mistakes of his past, Kutisar joins the feisty Meera on a madcap quest to save the critically endangered vultures that play a vital role in Parsi sky burials. Jacob Rajan delivers a dazzling solo performance as he channels seven characters, weaving the afterlife and a dash of Bollywood disco into the real-life mystery of India’s vanishing vultures. 

Infused with serious laughter and exquisite puppetry, this show is guaranteed to blow your mind and melt your heart. 

“To label this a must-see is an understatement” – NZ Herald

“One of the best one-man performances you will see” – Time Out

“Engaging, beyond anything I’ve ever seen” – Theatrescenes

Creative Captioned (CC): 


Creative Captioned (CC) performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf / Hard of Hearing. In a CC performance, there will be text projected on or near the stage that transcribes all auditory elements of the show into written English (speech, music, sound cues, etc). Trained captioners will operate their captions live. Colour contrast, placement, and size of the caption text will be considered throughout the process. Advised by our patrons and Venue team, seating for audience members will be allocated to provide an optimal view of the captions during the performance, and the stage itself.

Singapore Sign Language Interpreted Performance (SgSL):


Sign Language Interpreted performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. In a signed performance, there will be a trained interpreter who will be placed in a visible position on or near the stage. The interpreter will sign all auditory elements of the show using Singapore Sign Language. Advised by The Singapore Association of the Deaf, seating is allocated for each SgSL performance to provide an optimal view to both the show and the interpreter.
