A world premiere, a national tour of another show, and shooting starting on a film version of acclaimed play Krishnan's Dairy - it's a massive year for one of the country's most successful theatre companies, Indian Ink. An American theatre company has commissioned Indian Ink to create a show - vaudevillian extravaganza where death row inmates pay homage to the inventor of the electric chair. Welcome to the Murder House is the latest and ninth production from the Indian Ink Stable, that started with Krishnan's Dairy more than 15 years ago.
Lynn Freeman is joined by Jacob Rajan and Justin Lewis, the company founders, collaborators and firm friends.
Welcome to the Murder House is their most ambitious production yet. It's also their first commission by an overseas company: Orange-county based South Coast Repertory Theatre. It opens 26th of May at Te Auaha in Wellington.
