Pratidhwani and SIS Productions present

Performed at Theatre Off Jackson


Written by Nandita Shenoy
Directed by Agastya Kohli


“A fun spin on romantic comedies”

– Chicago Tribune

“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

About the Play

Washer/Dryer  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 a 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.
