Back by popular demand
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, 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 $15.99 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 email@example.com.
Ticket buyers will receive a confirmation email with viewing details from Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company.
This is a recording of a live performance captured in December 2020, and it may be viewed at your convenience April 13‒25. You will need internet access and a smartphone, tablet or computer to watch the show.
This event contains strong language and is recommended for ages 12 and up.
