In 2007 Ravi Jain had just completed school and was itching to get his feet wet in the theatre scene. With plans to begin his own company, Ravi has put off marriage for a few years, much to the disappointment of his mother, Asha, who was getting impatient with Ravi’s non-traditional approach to life. In this autobiographical story of the Jain family, Ravi recalls a trip to India with his parents in tow, where they ambushed him with a series of prospective wives at every turn. Conveyed through storytelling, A Brimful of Asha is a comedic and heartwarming tale of a family caught between two cultures.

Asha Jain grew up in New Delhi, India. Upon completion of her master’s degree in 1973, she married and immigrated to Canada. While supporting her husband, Ramesh, in founding his own business, she raised two boys, Anurag and Ravi. She is a wonderful mother, wife, and now a very funny actor. She is excited to be sharing this story with the world to finally prove her son wrong.

Ravi Jain is an award-winning actor, director, producer, and educator, and the artistic director of Why Not Theatre. He is engaged in many different arts organizations and creations across Toronto and the globe, including the programming committee for the Regent Park Arts and Culture Centre and the artist advisory committee for ArtReach Toronto.

“A Brimful of Asha is full to the brim with loving, personal admissions.” —Naomi Skwarna, NOW Magazine

“Ravi Jain is a theatre force of nature.” —Lynn Slotkin, The Slotkin Letter

“…a warm, fresh piece of theatre.” —Martin Morrow, The Globe and Mail
