Naveen Gavaskar is a nice Indian boy who wants a traditional Hindu marriage to... another nice Indian boy. While his parents are busy trying to wrap their heads around this twist on tradition, his older sister returns home and drops a bombshell of her own. This comedy about love and marriage tackles the joys and chaos of family, whether gay or straight, arranged or not. Get ready for a heartwarming and hilarious ride through the ups and downs of modern relationships and timeless family expectations.


This is, without a doubt, the funniest script we read this year. It is touching, heartfelt and so real, making it a perfect story for the winter months. The major theme of cultural blending is in the lives of everyone that lives in New West and beyond. Each character is a unique blend of East and West, this fascilitates great dicussion about race, culture and how we all fit in. The story also has a huge focus on family, as we try to support and help our family we can accidentally push them away. The characters learn how to be a stronger family through the story and this is the core of building a strong community. This script provides an oppourtunity to reach out to new communities that can join our own, as well as give a voice to an underrepresented part of the theatre community and New Westminster. Truly a fantastic, fun script!


A Nice Indian Boy was first produced by East West Players in Los Angeles, CA under EWP Producing Artistic Director, Tim Dang
