  Aubergine at South Coast Repertory


South Coast Repertory
655 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa

Sometimes a meal is more than just food. A man shares a bowl of berries and a young woman falls in love. A mother meticulously prepares her son's favorite dish to keep him from leaving home. And a Korean-American son cooks soup for his ailing father to say what words cannot. The perfect bite transcends time and cultural differences in this poetic tale of love, loss and healing by the author of The Language Archive and Office Hour.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Cho has written "Aubergine" around a constellation of themes. The structure of the drama is associative. Food offers sustenance, a source of life, but it's the imminence of death that reawakens these gustatory remembrances. Food isn't just food. It's a language of love - and therefore also a language of loss."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...Julia Cho returns to South Coast Repertory with Aubergine, the Korean-American playwright's deeply moving meditation on love, life, dying, death, family, memory ... and the role that food plays in all of the above."
