SIS Productions, an all-volunteer company created to provide leadership opportunities and decision-making roles for Asian American women, is launching a campaign to Celebrate Women through all the work that we do – on stage, behind the scenes, and in the community. SIS hopes to inspire people of all genders, ages and races to re-imagine how women are valued in our culture. Envision what might be possible if women are appreciated for their accomplishments over their looks, size or weight. Where young girls are taught to reach their full-potential. Where women past a certain age are sought after for their wisdom and advice rather than fading into invisibility.
Washer/Dryer by Nandita Shenoy is a contemporary comedy about a modern Indian-American woman who elopes with a Chinese-American man only to realize that happily-ever-after is much more challenging when you’re living on an actor’s salary and trying to hold onto an apartment that has the most coveted of amenities – its own washer/dryer. A colorful cast of nosy neighbors and an disapproving mother-in-law take the dual-ethnicity couple for a spin in this Rom-Com about “Crazy Poor Asians.” Under the pressures of culture and tradition, they discover that they haven’t been entirely honest with each other or themselves, and must decide if all is really fair in love and real estate.
Washer/Dryer is a co-production with Pratidhwani!
Runs September 6 – 22, 2019
