Mother in Another Language - By Margaret Friedman
"ReAct Theatre and producing partner Pratidhwani strike a gusher with Taniya Hossain’s delightful parlor comedy about a young woman, Karen, whose relationship with Bengali fiancé Tarek gets hijacked by his widowed mother Meena, who comes to live with them in NYC." more ›
"Co-directors David Hsieh and Agastya Kohli effectively use the play's humor to spotlight the deeper issues it raises. They've guided the extremely competent lead actors to portray their righteousness, confusion and disappointment with subtlety as well as passion." more ›
"Directors David Hsieh and Agastya Kohli have brought the theme to life brilliantly. Avoiding traditional comedy cliches, they have emphasized character over device and situation. This excellent choice allows the script to crackle with vitality because the characters are so much more interesting than their circumstances, and allows the play to address its themes directly without ever sounding mechanical or, worse, authorial." more ›
