A Brimful Of Asha

A Why Not Theatre production presented by the Tricycle Theatre and Richard Jordan Productions
Written and performed by Ravi Jain and Asha Jain
Directed by Ravi Jain

‘You don’t get to choose any member of your family. Why do you need to choose your wife?’ – Asha Jain

Ravi’s trip to India couldn’t be more perfect. Until his parents begin introducing potential brides.

In this hilarious show from the director of Like Mother, Like Daughter (★★★★ ‘Compelling’ – The Guardian), real life mother and son Asha and Ravi Jain share the stage to tell this true story of generational culture clash.

A Brimful of Asha comes to the UK following a world tour, which has included sell-out runs in theatres across North America.

FOUR STARS ‘Warm, intimate and very funny’ The Daily Telegraph

FOUR STARS ‘Frank, funny and touchingly direct’ Time Out

FOUR STARS ‘full of charm, wit and guile…’

…both beguiling and illuminating’ The Times  

‘Pioneering in its intimacy and yet unapologetically heartwarming,
Ravi Jain’s play is a beguiling blend of old and new styles,
which fits the material beautifully’
The New York Times
