About Colonialism is Terrible, But Phở is Delicious

This biting comedy spans centuries, continents, and cultures in a compelling three-part vignette structure. Beginning in 1880s French Indochina, a headstrong Vietnamese cook finds herself in the kitchen of aristocratic French settlers. Then in 1999 Vietnam, American tourists get their first taste of the local cuisine. Finally, in present-day, gentrifying Brooklyn, the simmering clash around culture, ownership, and authenticity comes to a roaring boil.

“a biting and scrumptious three-part treat of a play… a layered comedy melange with ingenious insights, and fine direction.”
-- Berkeleyside

“A funny, thought-provoking and well-crafted play… Like any well-crafted dish, the play offers a whole lot to savor.”
-- Mercury News
