AUBERGINE
Oct 8, 9, & 15, 2019

By Julia Cho

Recommended Grade Level: 7-12

Areas for Study and Discussion: Korean American Immigration, Korean Language, Inter-generational Divides and Communication Barriers in Immigrant Families

Story: 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.

Performance Length: 2 hours, 15 minutes (including intermission)

Performance Location: Park Square’s Boss Thrust Stage
