Contemporary Comedy • Canadian Premiere
Where commerce, spirituality, and comedy meet
By Dipika Guha
Directed by Jovanni Sy
February 7 - 16, 2019 • MainStage
Comedy in the Quest for Happiness.
Joan has been hired to stabilize Jojomon, a yoga apparel giant, after its CEO is brought down by a fat-shaming scandal. But just as she finds her footing, more trouble surfaces and the sales freefall. Jojomon needs an image makeover—and fast. Risking everything on a wild plan, Joan and her colleagues are willing to try anything to save face. This hilarious satire asks what it takes to find authenticity in a world determined to sell enlightenment.
"At its heart, this is a play about what it means to be yourself." - Dipika Guha
