MARCH 17 TO APRIL 15 Vancouver got a little taste of India when writer Anosh Irani unveiled his curry-flavoured comedy My Granny the Goldfish in 2010. Now it’s Toronto’s turn. The play tells of a young man in the hospital and the eccentric grandmother who flies in from Bombay to visit him. Applauded for its hilarious one-liners, it’s also a poignant story of culture, family and the ways in which laughter really can be the best medicine. Though set in Canada’s west coast metropolis, Granny is sure to be a perfect fit for Toronto’s multicultural hodgepodge, too. Factory Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 8 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m., $30 to $55; call 416-504-9971 or click here for showtimes and tickets.
