South Coast Repertory will have the World Premiere of Dipika Guha’s YOGA PLAY, as part of the Pacific Playwrights Festival. The play will have a limited run, and shares the festival with other full productions and staged readings.
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 stride, more trouble surfaces and sales plummet. Joan comes up with a plan so risky that it could make or break the company and her career—and what it requires from her CFO, Raj, is far beyond the call of duty. This sharp comedy asks what it takes to find your own authenticity in a world determined to sell enlightenment.
Tim will play Fred – Strategic Assistant to Joan, and longtime Jojomon employee. A native of Singapore, Fred fully immerses himself in the culture of Jojomon in an effort to escape his troubles from home.
