Presented virtually December 5 – January 3
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, each show is performed and broadcast live. With humor and humanity, Amir Nizar Zuabi’s (Grey Rock) new play explores the unpredictable nature of grief and the delicacy of family connection across geographical and generational divides.
In partnership with PlayCo, Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, American Repertory Theater and Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Guthrie is thrilled to co-present this boundary-pushing experience created for a virtual audience.
Tickets start at $15 and are available through the Woolly Mammoth Box Office in Washington, D.C. Purchase online at woollymammoth.net, by phone at 202.393.3939, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To make this production accessible for as many audiences as possible, $5 tickets are available for preview performances (Dec 5–12) with the code "EVERYONE5".
All performance times are EST and broadcast live via Zoom. You will need internet access and a smartphone, tablet or computer to view the performance.
This event contains strong language and is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Our restaurant partner
We encourage you to pair a performance of This Is Who I Am with a takeout meal from our restaurant partner World Street Kitchen. The brainchild of brothers Saed and Sameh Wadi, this neighborhood restaurant was born from the popularity of their trailblazing food truck and features flavors from across the globe — it's cooking without borders. And for a sweet treat, stop by Milkjam Creamery — the Wadis’ ice cream shop — for a take-home sundae to enjoy after the show!
