ArtsEmerson: ‘Brimful of Asha’
March 9 - March 22$15 – $100
With sold-out runs across the world, A Brimful of Asha is a critically acclaimed hit and an instant favorite with audiences everywhere.
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’s the perfect time to introduce him to potential brides. Ravi isn’t sold on the idea of getting married—at least not yet—but Asha panics that time is running out.
Full of laughs and heartache, this delightful family tale perfectly illustrates how, though both parents and children want the best future possible, they often can’t agree on the way forward. As Asha explains to her son, “You don’t get to choose your family, why should you choose your wife?”
