Aubergine by Julia Cho at South Coast Repertory Oct 19 - Nov 16, 2019
Sometimes a meal is more than just food. A man shares a bowl of berries and a young woman falls in love. A mother meticulously prepares her son’s favorite dish to keep him from leaving home. And a Korean-American son cooks soup for his ailing father to say what words cannot. The perfect bite transcends time and cultural differences in this poetic tale of love, loss and healing by the author of The Language Archive and Office Hour.
Previews: October 19-24, 2019 First Night: October 25, 2019 Regular Performances: October 26 - November 16, 2019
http://www.stagescenela.com/2019/10/aubergine/ Under Lisa Peterson’s nuanced direction, performances could not be finer, from Kim’s scruffily handsome, obstinately prickly Ray to a never-better Lee’s hard-edged but tender-hearted Cornelia to Mutu’s wise and caring Lucien to Baek’s Korean-speaking charmer of an Uncle.
