A Nice Indian Boy – WORLD PREMIERE
By Madhuri Shekar
Directed by Snehal Desai

February 20 – March 23, 2014

The Supreme Court Ruling on gay marriage has been decided, and this play is timely in continuing the discussion. A comedy about love and marriage,  Naveen Gavaskar and Keshav Kurundkar share all things Indian – from the Hindi language to the difficulty of being gay in Indian culture. Keshav, however, is adopted by Indian parents…and Caucasian.

With generous support from the S. Mark Taper Foundation Endowment for East West Players. In association with the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and in community partnership with API Equality and Satrang.

Running time: 1 hour 45 minutes. This production is performed without an intermission.

This production features Christian Durso as KESHAV KURUNDKAR, Andy Gala as NAVEEN GAVASKAR, Rachna Khatau as MEGHA GAVASKAR, Mouzam Makkar as ARUNDHATHI RAO, and Anjul Nigam as ARCHIT GAVASKAR.
