‘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.

Creatives include Julie Fox (Designer) and Beth Kates (Lighting and Video Designer).


★★★★ ‘Warm, intimate and very funny’ The Daily Telegraph

★★★★ ‘Frank, funny and touchingly direct’ Time Out

★★★★ ‘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’
