August 20–October 2
From the Artistic Director
Aubergine is a beautiful, important play. It has been many years since Playwrights Horizons produced Julia’s earlier play, BFE, which was only her second play produced in New York.
Playwright's Perspective: Julia Cho
There are two dishes, above all, that I associate with my father. The first is ramen. And by “ramen” I mean instant ramen, not the artisanal, simmered-for-40-hours kind of Japanese ramen so popular right now. The latter is undoubtedly more delicious but was entirely unavailable to me in my youth.
The American Voice: Momentary Grace
When Sah-Jin, the widowed immigrant mother in Julia Cho’s stirring, melancholic 99 Histories, describes a traumatic parting with the sister she last saw as a teenager in Korea, her story forms around the memory of food.
