Pratidhwani and SIS Productions announce auditions for WASHER/DRYER by Nandita Shenoy, a play in English, to be staged Sept 6th through Sept 22, 2019, at Theatre off Jackson, Seattle. Directed by Agastya Kohli.

About the Play:

WASHER/DRYER by Nandita Shenoy is a delicious farce of a fairytale 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 imperious 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.

"It is refreshing to see a play that sends up the foibles of ethnic groups we do not often see on the stage but even more impressive is that Shenoy was able to find a universal humanity in her characters." - Spectrum News NY1
