MT Space And The Centre Present The Runaway Hit Theatre Production A Brimful Of Asha
MT Space and Centre In The Square present Why Not Theatre’s charming and hilariously unpredictable production A Brimful of Asha from April 30 to May 3 at 7:30 PM in The Centre’s Studio Theatre.
Award-winning actor, director, producer, and educator Ravi Jain and his mother Asha Jain have written a play about the challenges that arise out of the hope for happiness that parents have for their kids and vice versa. The production premiered in Toronto in 2012 where it enjoyed sold-out runs and has been touring Canada to rave reviews. The title, A Brimful of Asha, comes from a song written by the UK band Cornershop and also plays on the Hindi word ‘asha’ which means hope.
Real-life mother and son, Asha and Ravi Jain share the stage and tell this true (and very Canadian) story of generational and cultural clash. When Ravi takes a trip to India his parents decide it is the perfect time to introduce him to potential brides. Ravi is not sold on the idea of getting married (at least not yet) but Asha fears that time is running out.
A Brimful of Asha is written and performed by Ravi Jain and Asha Jain, directed by Ravi Jain, with set design by Julie Fox, lighting and video design by Beth Kates (Playground Studios) and interview videos by Kate Fraser and Nabil Shash (Heartist Productions).
Tickets to A Brimful of Asha are $25 for adults, $15 for Students/Seniors (plus applicable fees) and may be purchased online at www.centreinthesquare.com, by calling 519-578-1570 or 1-800-265-8977, or in person at the Centre In The Square Box Office (101 Queen Street North).
