Aubergine - 2016 - Off-Broadway

A man shares a bowl of berries, and a young woman falls in love. A world away, a mother prepares a bowl of soup to keep her son from leaving home. And a son cooks a meal for his dying father 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.

From Thanksgiving turkey to roasted corn on the 4th of July to a slice of birthday cake, we grow up associating food with familial bonding and the gathering of loved ones. When we seek a romantic partner, eating together becomes an important part of the mating ritual and when tragedy strikes, we offer food as comfort.
