is proud to be a part of the Resident Theater Program and of Victory
Gardens' diverse and inspiring artistic community," Rasaka's Producing
Artistic Director Kamal Hans said. "We are excited about producing A
Nice Indian Boy, an emotional piece that tackles the tough matters of
gender, identity, love and marriage, with a humor and honesty that
audiences will appreciate."
"A Nice Indian Boy is a romantic comedy with familiar tropes -- that are anything but familiar when immigrant assimilation collides with the adoption of a foreign heritage," Director Anna Bahow said. "The play challenges our traditional concepts of
ethnicity and marriage. Shekar has such respect for her characters and the humor is generous to all."
