PERFORMED & BROADCAST LIVE
a balancing act of care and resentment, closeness
and vast separation, two actors cook in real-time
over video chat
Separated by continents, an estranged father and son reunite over Zoom. From their respective kitchens in Ramallah and New York City, they recreate a cherished family recipe and struggle to bridge the gap between them, one ingredient at a time.
Told through the intimacy of a video call, with humor and humanity Amir Nizar Zuabi’s new play explores the unpredictable nature of grief and the delicacy of family connection across geographical and generational divides.
Donations made with the purchase of tickets will be split evenly among all 5 partner organizations.
“If you had told me my first commissioned play for Woolly Mammoth would be a co-production with 5 other major arts institutions in the country, written by the brilliant Amir Nizar Zuabi, and livestreamed rather than performed on stage, I would have had trouble believing you! Yet to categorize this project as a piece of pandemic theatre feels incorrect. Amir has written a story specifically meant to be told through a video call, connecting form and content seamlessly. The experience is intimate and still inherently theatrical. I am so honored to have co-commissioned this piece with PlayCo and to continue to poke at the boundaries of what theatre can be; both online and in person."
