Photo Flash: In Rehearsal with Playwrights Horizons' AUBERGINE

Playwrights Horizons will present AUBERGINE- the New York premiere of a new play by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize winner Julia Cho (BFE at PH, The Language Archive, The Piano Teacher, Durango, The Architecture of Loss), directed by Kate Whoriskey (Fabulation, Inked Baby at PH; Ruined; Her Requiem).

The cast of AUBERGINE will feature Tim Kang (Kimball Cho on "The Mentalist," "The Vampire Diaries," Aubergine at Berkeley Rep), Sue Jean Kim (Assistance, The Drunken City, BFE at PH; Water by the Spoonful), Jessica Love (Broadway's The River, The Snow Geese, Grace), Stephen Park ("The Mindy Project," "Person of Interest," "Elementary"), Obie Award winner Michael Potts (Grey Gardens; Mud, River, Stone at PH; The Book of Mormon; The America Play; HBO's "True Detective") and Joseph Steven Yang (Aubergine at Berkeley Rep, Eden, Deface).

AUBERGINE will begin previews Friday, August 19 at 8PM with an Opening Night set for Monday, September 12 at 7PM. The limited engagement will play through Sunday evening, October 2 at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater (416 West 42nd Street).

A man (Mr. Kang) shares a bowl of berries, and a young woman (Ms. Kim) falls in love. A world away, a mother prepares a bowl of soup to keep her son (Mr. Park) from leaving home. And a son (Mr. Park) cooks a meal for his dying father (Mr. Kang) to say everything that words can't. In Julia Cho's poignant and lyrical new play, the making of a perfect meal is an expression more precise than language, and the medium through which life gradually reveals itself.
