Modern India, a world of cyberspace and ancient gods.

In the swirling buzz of a railway station, a young girl is abandoned and brings the place to a standstill with a beautiful song. Among the throng is a poor chai-wallah (tea-seller) and in that sweet moment his life is turned upside-down. Our Guru (Jacob Rajan) is a bucktoothed chameleon, channelling seventeen different characters and dispensing questionable spiritual wisdom as he plays out a serpentine tale of impossible love and modern-day magic.

Marvellous. You feel amazed and dizzied by this solo turn of Jacob’s. His theatricality and skill are unlike anything that we see, really.– Eamon
