If ever a family was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, it's the Gupta family of Mumbai, India! In Shane Sakhrani's hilarious The Doctor is Indian, an unexpected takeover of the Gupta family business lands it in the hands of an American corporation. Marital woes abound. Male-female dynamics are called into question. The specter of inter-racial dating rears its head. And a poisonous legacy threatens the security of the family home.
Traditionally, an Indian family would have suffered these struggles with silent resentment. But in this age of globalization, intrusive modes of communication and Western style family therapy turn tradition on its head. Globalization at its funniest!
Followed by a Q&A session with playwright Shane Sakhrani.
