For over two decades, Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis have pursued their idea of the ‘Serious Laugh’—opening mouths with laughter in order to slip something serious in along with a love of mask and story. Indian ink blends western theatrical traditions with eastern flavors and has been critically acclaimed for its use of live music, heightened theatricality, humor, pathos, and great storytelling.
Take a wild ride to paradise in a powerful new play about impermanence—of life, love…and ice cream! This glorious production is inspired by Ernest Becker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Denial of Death” and the vibrant, life-filled chaos of India’s most cosmopolitan city, Mumbai. 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. A man trying desperately to avoid death is flung between limbo and his past, where a rebellious young woman holds the key that may guide him to paradise. Infused with serious laughter, exquisite puppetry, and inspired sound design, this show is guaranteed to blow your mind and melt your heart.
