Naveen Gavaskar and Keshav Kurundkar share all things Indian, from the Hindi language to the difficulty of being gay in Indian culture. Further complicating matters is that Keshav was adopted by Indian parents -- and is caucasian. The Supreme Court's landmark rulings on gay marriage have been the topic of much debate throughout the country, and this timely comedy continues the discussion about love in the modern world. A Nice Indian Boy was the runner-up winner of the EWP Face of the Future Playwriting Competition. Learn More

It is a very interesting story of a mixed-race, American/Vietnamese family going back to Vietnam for the first time after 25 years. Congratulations to the writer who is able to show the long and glorious history and culture of Vietnam, the ravages and destruction of the war, and the lingering death toll in a new and fresh perspective. As for the staging: The much too frequent changing of the props (surely more than 12 times) felt really disruptive. Most of the arrangements felt quite arbitrary except when all the stools were combined to form a bridge. This theatre and this play deserve a much wider audience.
