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.

“This has been a fun challenge for me,” says Sharma. “I’ve never written a play before so it has been interesting and exciting to slowly watch the characters come alive. I chose to write this play because we all judge people and ideas that we don’t understand. We fear concepts that are alien to us. I wanted to explore that as a writer and actor. I also wanted to write strong South Asian characters that represent strong cultural perspectives and expose not only South Asian themes, but Canadian themes as well. Above all, I hope the audience will interpret this as a play not only about South Asian culture, but about issues we all experience in Canada.”
