Heartwarming Drama

Boss Thrust Stage
view/download playbill

A son cooks a meal for his dying father to say everything that his words can’t. Lyrical, humorous and full of love, this is a story of an intergenerational Korean family struggling to relate across emotional, linguistic and cultural divides. When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences and brings us together.
