About the Show

“A combination of theatrical ingredients so fulfilling that a standing ovation is in order.”  — San Francisco Chronicle 

“This is a rare form of entertainment, closer perhaps to enlightenment…” — Los Angeles Times

Ray believes in the power of food. As a gourmet chef, he’s seen a bowl of berries help a woman to fall in love. He’s heard stories of a meal prepared by a mother to keep a son from leaving home and moving to the other side of the world. Now with the help of his uncle, who arrives unexpectedly from Korea, Ray is tasked with preparing a family soup recipe to keep his father alive. 
 
When words fail, a home-cooked meal transcends differences in this touching story of intergenerational connectedness, forgiveness and the sweetest spice of life: love. As a Korean family struggles to relate across emotional and cultural divides, it’s the ingredients they share in common that lead to understanding. Aubergine is a mouthwatering meditation on the beauty of life where hope is no mere ingredient—it’s the main course.
