LENGTH: 1 Hour
CAST SIZE: 1 – 2 Cast Members

Two Hindu gods, two mortals, an urn, and a Lonely Planet guide.


Two Hindu gods, two mortals, an urn, and a Lonely Planet guide.

Leela, a magazine writer, has fled Australia to India, seeking spirituality and adventure. Chris, an Anglo-Indian advertising guru, has returned to his Indian homeland to scatter his mother’s ashes.

Bollywood, divine interventions and a wager, lead these two chance companions on a travel sutra. Together they struggle with this ancient and modern culture and find that India has its own way of relieving them of excess baggage.

Are they on the road to love or is this just another bumpy bus ride? Will the gods help them achieve enlightenment, or will the gods themselves be enlightened? Gods of Spicy Things is a divine comedy about the beautiful contradiction that is India.
