Playwright

“Both audience-pleasing funny and a serious account of intra-cultural, intergenerational tensions.” — Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Plays

After a few years of tickling funny bones with the sketches he’d written, Munish decided to try his hand at a one-act play.

Penned in winter 2011, Mrs. Singh and Me came to life at the Historic Theatre at The Cultch as part of the 2015 Vancouver Fringe Festival.

It was directed by Jessie-award nominee Kathleen Duborg and produced by South Asian Arts. Munish co-starred with the masterful Nimet Kanji.

Generating buzz and selling out performances, Mrs. Singh and Me earned Pick of the Fringe honors.

The play — from conception to realization — is a testament to the cooperative spirit of the Vancouver theatre scene. Mrs. Singh and Me could not have been written without the guidance of experienced playwrights, inspiration from fellow sketch comedy actors and the support of countless others in the community.

In 2017 Munish turned Mrs. Singh and Me into a full-length play and it was selected as one of five plays showcased During the Arts Clubs ReAct Festival 2017.

Munish also currently working on his first one-person show currently titled Jokes staring Poems. ft. Dance.
