Originally opened in San Francisco, Dipika Guha’s Yoga Play is a sensational comedy about the ways commercial companies mine spirituality, cultural appropriation and happiness for profit. It centers around Jojomon, a Lululemon-type athleisure wear company caught in a scandal when their line of yoga pants is deemed too transparent on fuller-figured women. Jojomon’s new CEO Joan grapples with damage control as she tries to convince the other male execs, Raj and Fred, to allow production of larger size-pants to secure a new clientele. Another company misstep brings more stress for Joan, and she starts to enact a plan that requires the U.S.-born-and-raised Raj to pretend he has a deeper connection to his South Asian heritage than he actually does. Don’t miss the run of this hilarious and thoughtful contemporary farce.
