The 46th season of East West Players is here!

The first show of our 2011 – 2012 season LANGUAGES OF LOVE begins TODAY with special previews of  “A Widow of No Importance,” by Shane Sakhran and directed by Shaheen Vaaz.

In association with South Asian Network and USC School of Theatre.

The show will run from September 08 – October 09, 2011.

Deepa has been a widow for two years. Her only desire now is to see her daughter married so that she can die in peace. But when her recently divorced neighbor, also her son’s best friend, professes his love for her, her inner-cougar emerges to break tradition and start living again. A smart and sexy comedy about carving new paths and leaping for the stars.
