directed by EVREN ODCIKIN

Presented virtually December 5 – January 3


Written specifically for the Zoom environment, this new work by Amir Nizar Zuabi (Grey Rock) explores the complex themes of family, grief and connection through an everyday task: cooking. Performed live every night, an estranged father and son attempt to bridge the emotional divides between them while making a cherished family recipe via video chat in kitchens continents apart. 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.

"This play for me is about grief and the way we negotiate it. It's about distance and how we negotiate it. It's about manhood and how we negotiate it. And it's about love and how it negotiates us." – Amir Nizar Zuabi
