Whether it is assisting in the preparation of the food, handing out scarves and garlands, or helping to reinforce some little white lies to spare the feelings of the show’s two characters, participation is encouraged. Don’t worry though, none of the show’s audience participation is designed to make you uncomfortable.
- Vancouver Presents

Indians throw crazy parties. Heard of Diwali? A million lamps floating on a river and fireworks to wake the dead. Heard of Holi? An explosion of color and joy and massive dry-cleaning bills.

How about Onam? No? It’s the harvest festival, and this one could be the craziest of them all!

We invite you to join us at Mrs. Krishnan’s dining table in the backroom of Krishnan’s Dairy, where garlands decorate the ceiling, food simmers on the stove and strangers become friends. Join the party for a joyful experience full of laughter, music, dancing and vegetarian dahl prepared live during the performance.



Seating for  Mrs. Krishnan’s Party is a key part of the audience experience. The show is like a party and audience members are the guests.

Indian Ink Theatre Company has developed five ticket types for the show, each playfully named for the types of people one might encounter at a party.

Choose Your Experience:
VIP: A premium seat location directly at the dining table
Inner Circle: A premium seat location on stage level 
Wallflower: A seat on a raised platform at the edge of the room; great view, but not as involved in the action.
Due to the platform seating, no wheelchair accommodations will be available for the Wall Flower ticket option.

Cheeky Seat: A seat at stage level, behind the inner circle 
Party Animal: No seat, standing room only in a designated location 
The closer the seat, the more involved you are in the performance. Everyone will have the opportunity to eat vegetarian dahl after the performance.
