Esther Choi and the Fish that Drowned
a new play by Stephanie Kyung-Sun Walters
Esther Choi is your favorite all-American, overachieving-Asian teen except she has a ghost. Anthony Gibson is Esther’s best friend and (spoiler alert) he’s dead. Mr. Choi is Esther’s grandfather and he owns a haunted dry cleaner on Cheltenham Ave. In an (un)likely turn of events, Esther must grapple with grief, loneliness, and winning first chair in high school orchestra, all while living up to her grandfather’s new expectations.
a new play by Steve Gravelle
In the near future, Chef is successful, running their farm-to-table restaurant and making everything from scratch. But when a brain injury takes them out of the kitchen and leaves them unable to work for six months, their ex-girlfriend buys them a robot assistant to help out. When the robots come for us, will they come with lasers and bombs, or will they come with whisks and wooden spoons?
