About the show

The Play Co. presents this environmentally staged solo play featuring a Syrian woman sharing stories from her past while preparing a meal in various NYC kitchens. More…

Step into the kitchen. The onions are cooking on the stove and meat is on the cutting board waiting to be chopped. Our host is preparing kubah, a traditional Syrian dish. While she cooks, she tells us the story of meeting Ashraf, a Syrian exile, and falling in love with him as he desperately tries to help those he was forced to leave behind. When he vanishes, she impulsively trails him to her homeland—one she has never known, now consumed by war. As the meal comes together and then falls apart, we hear the tales of brutality, grace, and humanity of the Syrian refugees she meets along the way. Note: This show has no fixed venue. It is staged in a variety of NYC kitchens in private homes and community centers.
