From Press Release
As part of The Next Stage Theatre Festival, Red Betty Theatre presents The Washing Machine
The Washing Machine chronicles the aftermath of Isabelle’s return to Chez Nous – her childhood home in India. Through the influence of octogenarian gurus, ghostly meddling spirits, and a multitude of crying monkeys, Isabelle is forced to realize that no fancy spin cycles can wash away the ‘dirty laundry’ that is her ancestry.
After a successful showing at Nightwood Theatre’s Groundswell Festival of New Work, director Sasha Kovacs joins writer Radha Menon (writer of award-winning screenplay such as Max Neo) to assemble a team as multi-cultural as it is multi-generational, with performers including Steve Cumyn, Ronica Sajnani, Asha Vijayasigham, and Aparajit Bhattacharjee.
