National and international comedienne Vijai Nathan
presents her solo-show, "Good Girls
Don't, But Indian Girls Do," a funny and poignant
exploration of the struggle to discover, create and claim an Indian
American identity. Vijai breaks every taboo as she exposes the
underbelly of an Indian American family. She takes you through
growing up Indian in a Jewish community; her discovery of sex
in a repressed Hindu household; and how she finds herself along
the way. It's "Gandhi" meets "Pretty in Pink."
