Take a wild ride to paradise with Indian Ink’s brand new play.

Master storyteller Jacob Rajan weaves 1980s Mumbai nightclubs, mad dogs and ice cream into the mystery of India’s vanishing vultures.

Prepare for laughter, exquisite puppetry and a dash of Indian disco.

This show will blow your mind and melt your heart. Based on an incredible true story.

The skies over Mumbai once teemed with vultures but now they have disappeared.

A country boy arrives in India’s most exciting city and befriends a young woman from the enigmatic Parsi community – a people whose faith is entwined with the vulture.

As the new friends are drawn deeper into the puzzle of the missing birds, the kulfi shop which sits at the heart of their world becomes an unlikely battleground, changing their lives forever.

Like kulfi (ice cream’s Indian ancestor), this show is richly layered and impossible to resist.

Indian Ink has brought together the award-winning team behind their hits Krishnan’s Dairy and Guru of Chai and is delighted to introduce you to puppet maestro Jon Coddington.

We’re lucky to be in one of the few places in the world where live performance is still possible and we can’t wait to share this premier season with you.
