Emmett Robinson Theatre at College of Charleston
One of the most riveting elements a theater-goer can experience is great chemistry between actors on stage. How much better does it get than the chemistry between a son and his mother? A Brimful of Asha has been wildly successful for its daring strides towards exposing a personal story with an unprecedented level of authenticity—the real characters to whom these events happened. Come experience the hospitality, transparency, and humor of a family as they voice their differences.
