Award-winning play “Mrs. Singh & Me” coming to Surrey!

South Asian Arts Society is proud to announce that “Mrs. Singh & Me” was one of just six shows (out of 108 shows) to be awarded “Pick of the Fringe” at this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. The encore presentation will take place on Sunday, September 27 at 5:00pm at the Revue Stage on Granville Island. Tickets are $25 (including applicable fees and taxes) and available online at http://bit.ly/1V4KTPA

And then, the play makes its way across the Alex Fraser bridge into Surrey for another 5 shows from Friday, October 2 to Sunday, October 4 at the Newton Cultural Centre (13530 72 Avenue). Tickets for the Surrey performance run are available online at mrssingh.eventbrite.ca or in person at Kamal’s Video Palace, located at 8268 120 Street in Surrey. Tickets are $20 (plus applicable fees and service charges).

Actor Munish Sharma (Iceland, This is War, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Chicken) debuts his skills as a playwright in this dark comedy. Love is in the air, but Mrs. Kuldeep Singh (Nimet Kanji) is having none of it. Her instincts could be right or she could be missing out on the best son-in-law she could ever ask for – Raj, whose methods are as extreme as his heart is sure.

Directed by Jessie Award-nominee Kathleen Duborg, produced by Gurpreet Sian and award-winning producer Rohit Chokhani, and starring Munish Sharma and award-winning actress Nimet Kanji (Bollywood Wedding, The Violet Hour, Continuum), Mrs. Singh & Me confronts cultural traditions and tackles generational differences, along with a generous helping of chai and cookies.
