  • matchmakerAble to bridge that age old gen­eration gap is A Brimful of Asha. Smart on all counts and wickedly funny, this two person play is truly a tour de farce. Done in conjunc­tion with The Arts Club Theatre and the growing Push Festival this must see show is now hold­ing court at the Arts Club Revue Stage on fabled Granville Island.

    Ninety minutes flies buoy in a flash as we first meet up with the young , well mmaybe not so young Ravi Jain and his mom Asha. Yes these two are a real mother and son team. Even be­fore the start of the show we at­tended you can feel the warmth as guests were treated to some sample samosas that were actu­ally given out by the two stars of the show. Talk about good PR. Don’t expect to get this special treatment at each show – instead you’ll be treated to a sweet and tender presentation of the IPA and downs of a family when a son is facing manhood.

    Without question the biggest decision a person faces, whether ought or old, is whether to get married. Here we have the de­lightful comical woes of a mother (and off stage dad) trying to marry off their son naturally the young man Ravi won’t have any part of it. From Toronto to exotic India we go as a potential arranged marriage or two plays havoc between the mother and son. Culture figures prominently in this tug of war for your hearts as both parties to this warm-hearted “dis­pute” turn to the audience for other timely advice. Warmth and love radiate throughout this joyous event. Only here until February 8 this is a live show full of life and com­edy.
