“Rich with comedic culture clashes but wise with emotional sincerity, Japanglish is a good pairing of strong script and strong performer” – John Threlfall – Monday Magazine
Yumi Ogawa’s autobiographical show bravely goes into the humour and heart of a first-generation Canadian family. She has difficulty speaking Japanese as her parents struggle with English. One house, two languages, two continents, two cultures, two sides desperately trying to reach the other.
For years Yumi has had packed audiences in fits of laughter with Vancouver’s hottest sketch comedy troupe Assaulted Fish. Now Yumi has struck out on her own! Her unique blend of characters and honesty, make Japanglish a hilarious and tearful Canadian story for all ages. “Japanglish really demonstrates the power of theatre.” – Mike Vardy – Plank.
Japanglish premiered at the Victoria Fringe Festival 2009 and was nominated for Best Female Performer and Best Solo Show. It then went on to a highly successful run at the Cultch in Vancouver.
“It’s entirely possible that Japanglish will have you laughing hysterically at one moment and tearing up at the next. This one’s the whole package, folks.” – Jessica Salloum – Plank
Japanglish is written and performed by Yumi Ogawa.
Directed and dramaturged by Dawn Milman.
