POSTPONED: “Yoga Play”

Due to COVID-19,  Yoga Play has been moved to Syracuse Stage’s 2020/2021 season, March 3-21, 2021.   The East Coast premiere of an uproarious new comedy about yoga and the quest for authenticity. Joan has a big problem. Recently named CEO of athletic-wear giant Jojomon—think high-end brand that’s part 60s one-hit wonder and part citrus fruit—she even more recently learned that a BBC investigative team is about to expose her Bangladeshi manufacturer of lavender scented yoga pants as an exploiter of child labor. Suddenly, Jojomon’s family of customers is all atwitter with accusations of inauthenticity. Only one solution will do—find a reclusive and revered yogi to serve as a spokesman and restore the company’s all-important claim to authenticity. They find him all right. The rest is 90 minutes of side-splitting comedy. The East Coast premiere of a timely new comedy by Dipika Guha, a talent to watch who was recently awarded a Venturous Playwright Fellowship by The Lark. Performances: Sunday, 5/31 and 6/14: 2pm Sunday, 6/7: 2pm and 7:30pm Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 7:30pm Wednesday, 5/27 and 6/10: 7:30pm Wednesday, 6/3: 2pm and 7:30pm Saturdays: 2pm and 7:30pm
