HBAF 2022 - Mrs Krishnan's Party

HBAF 1170x504px Mrs Krishnans Party

It’s Mrs Krishnan’s Party and you’re invited!

Step into the back room of Mrs Krishnan’s corner dairy where garlands decorate the ceiling, music flows and Mrs Krishnan is throwing a party like no other. Get a taste of Onam, a festival that marks the arrival of the New Year and prepare for some South Indian festive mayhem. Food simmers on the stove, laughter abounds, and strangers become friends in this joyous celebration of life.

Kalyani Nagarajan (Mrs Krishnan) and Justin Rogers (DJ Jimmy) juggle cooking, music, the audience and heartfelt drama in an acting tour de force where no two nights are the same. You might even find yourself setting the table or helping out with the cooking!

With multiple sold-out seasons at home and abroad, Mrs Krishnan’s Party has critics raving and audiences leaping to their feet. From distinguished Head Table guests to Party Animals in the back, check out the video below to choose your perfect seat.
