Overview

Produced in association with Olney Theatre Center.
When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it’s the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. A perceptive and lyrical exploration of the act of cooking as a form of expression, Aubergine is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient—it’s the main course.

Groups of 10 or more save!

Please note: Aubergine runs about 2 hours and 5 minutes and is performed in two acts with one intermission.
