The Ajoona Guest House

30 November—11 December 2021

A poetic ride into a dangerously beautiful, hidden New Delhi world, The Ajoona Guest House is a theatre production written by award-winning playwright, poet and actor Stephen House and directed by Rosalba Clemente.


The Ajonne Guest House
30 November—11 December
Bakehouse Theatre
255 Angas Street, Adelaide 5000

This article was produced in collaboration with Bakehouse Theatre.

Written on an Asialink India literature residency, the work centres on an Indian back-lane guests house. The colourful characters who inhabit it are moving on after spending decades together, but their parting of ways won’t come without stories, heartfelt goodbyes – and consequences.

The Ajoona Guest House comes off the back of Stephen’s previous acclaimed and widely toured works, Appalling Behaviour and Almost Face to Face, both published by Australian Plays Transform.

Praise for Stephens work includes:

“A natural raconteur.” The Age

“An amazing story-teller.” The Music

A brave and accomplished artist.” Stage Whispers

“House’s stage persona is magnetic.” The Advertiser

“Confident, practised and expert.” Barefoot Review

The creation of The Ajoona Guest House was assisted by Arts SA, the City of West Torrens, and Asialink and is playing from 30 November to 11 December at Bakehouse Theatre.

Tickets are available here.
