Presented by Yoga Mahny Productions

Shri Shri, LA’s most neurotic yoga teacher,  is coming to London to make us whole again. She has the answers to everyone’s pain through her eight step enlightenment programme. Or, is she really running away from her past, her broken marriage, her fear and her loneliness?

She meets Freddie, a gentle tube poet, on the Tube, who is far wiser than his years and who has understood the Tantric path and its many byways. She is driven by ambition to plagiarise his wisdom to promote her Guru Stardom.

In her frustration with London life, the apathy and incompetence of the British students, the TFL maintenance programme and the 2008 recession, her mission starts to unravel and her moral compass swings towards Selfridges…  She becomes unable to control her earthly desires when she spots a Balenciagia Bag in the pre-Christmas bargain bonanza.  She extorts money from her yoga disciples.

Karma bites her in the arse.

Is there any hope for this fallen Yoga Goddess?  Can she find new purpose in her life, will her tube poet have the answer or has her life gone down the tubes forever?

This production contains strong language.
