First, it was a bestselling book, then a blockbuster movie. Now The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a smash-hit stage adaption. The beloved story is a joyous comedy about taking risks, finding love and embracing second chances, even in the most surprising of places.

Described as “comedy gold”, the story revolves around a motley crew of elderly Brits who have grown disillusioned with their own country and decide they want a change. They don’t want to inconvenience their families and feel invisible in the country of their birth so they move to a new “residential hotel” in India. The Marigold Hotel ends up changing their lives forever.

With a cast of New Zealanders plus some surprise additions from the UK show, the production promises to be a truly heartwarming experience.
