Paradise or the Impermanence of Ice Cream

From 16 May 2024 | KC Arts Centre - Home of STC

From the producers of The Guru of Chai and Krishnan’s Diary  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. 

Thrown into limbo on his way to the afterlife, a man desperately seeks to evade death, facing the shadows of his youth. As he grapples with past transgressions, he navigates into the real-life mystery that's gravely affecting Parsi death rituals - India's vanishing vultures. Afterall, what symbolises death more profoundly than a vulture? 

This brilliant monologue is a rumination of the enigmas behind death, rich with existential angst and the sweetness of traditional Indian ice cream. After all, what better signifies the fleeting pleasures of life than the beloved treat of ice cream? 

“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
