Brimful Blog: On becoming part of the family…

Monday, September 14th, 2015 by Tricycle

In the last of our Brimful Blog installments, Nabil and his mum outline the perfect situation, a peaceful marriage where the daughter in law becomes part of the family (not setting the expectations too high of course!)

There is still time to see real life mother and son Asha and Ravi Jain on stage at the Tricycle in A Brimful Of Asha until 19 September – if you’ve enjoyed our warm and fuzzy parent and child stories, book now to join Asha and Ravi for a good old laugh, and some more stories every parent and child can relate to.

Brimful Blog: Is it time to lower your expectations?

Thursday, September 10th, 2015 by Tricycle

When it comes to relationships, are we all expecting too much of each other? Can a more traditional, arranged marriage help take off some of the pressure and lead to long term happiness? Anish and his mum are certainly advocates for arranged marriage – unlike Ravi Jain, who is fighting for his relationship freedom from his parents in comedy A Brimful Of Asha, which is now on stage at the Tricycle.

Negotiating family relationships is something we can all identify with! It’s not too late to book for A Brimful Of Asha that sees real life mother and son Asha and Ravi Jain take to the stage to share their family stories – click here for more information.

We have just one video blog left in the Brimful Blog series – check back soon.

Brimful Blog: Matched for life?

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015 by Tricycle

Do you think of your family when you chose a partner? Is marriage a joining of two people, or of two whole families? This may be one aspect of relationships where opinions differ across the generations.

Today we’re speaking to Ziadh and his mum about what marriage means: the joining of two families for life. This subject forms the basis for autumn comedy A Brimful Of Asha opening at the Tricycle this month – check out the trailer here.
