Brimful of Asha

So you think your mother is opinionated? Then meet Asha, a mother determined to see her son Ravi married – even if she has to arrange it. Why Not Theatre’s A Brimful of Asha is an unusual and hilarious production with real-life mother and son sharing Granville Island’s Revue Stage.

As Asha declares, “I am Indian. Ravi is Canadian.” Part of the 2014 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, the Arts Club Theatre will bring this true story of generational and cultural clash to Vancouver audiences next month.

“It’s an honour to be performing A Brimful of Asha at the Arts Club and with the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival,” said Ravi Jain, director, writer, and star. “My mother and I can’t wait to share our story with Vancouver audiences.”
The play’s title comes from the 1997 hit of the same name by British rock band Cornershop. In Hindi, “Asha” means hope, fitting for a play that is about the challenges that arise out of the hope for happiness for one’s parents and children.
Directed by Ravi Jain, A Brimful of Asha is written by and stars Ravi Jain and Asha Jain.
