Join ISPA Fellow Ravi Jain for A Brimful of Asha, the story of how his parents tried to arrange his marriage in 2007 honestly told by himself and his mother. It’s a very funny and in depth look at what it is to straddle two cultures and two generations.

Not many Canadian theatregoers know the name of Ravi Jain’s 10-year-old theatre company – but, if you scratch deep enough, you’ll find its fingerprints on many of the most notable new Canadian plays of recent years.

A Brimful of Asha, Concord Floral, Mouthpiece … these are just a few of the four-star, outside-the-box shows that the collaborative and co-operative Why Not Theatre has been involved in premiering in one way or another. A whole new audience will get to know the so-called “Toronto-based company with international scope” by name this month, however, now that it’s partnering with the biggest theatre company in town." (The Globe and Mail, March 21, 2017)

Check out this latest feature in The Globe and Mail on Ravi and his independent theatre company Why Not Theatre.
