Classically trained French chef Ray leaves his job behind to care for his dying father, a Korean immigrant. Ray's father never appreciated his son's culinary accomplishments, and therefore food painfully divides the two, even as it serves as the key to memory and identity for all the characters in this off-Broadway hit. As much as the language of food perplexes his father, the Korean language vexes Ray even more. He finds himself asking his estranged girlfriend for translation assistance when his non-English-speaking uncle arrives with a bag full of strange ingredients. This perceptive drama from award-winning writer Julia Cho ("Big Love, Fringe") distills the flavors of rich characters and complicated yet intense relationships, serving up a life-affirming soup that soothes. Tony Nam stars as Ray in this Olney Theatre Center production of "Aubergine". [less-]

"The Boys Next Door" provides a fly-on-the-wall glimpse inside a communal residence in New England where four mentally challenged men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly burned out young social worker named Jack.

Helen Hayes Award-winning actress, Iyona Blake ("Caroline or Change"), returns to the Creative Cauldron in Falls Church to portray one of America's most iconic jazz legends. In 1959, Billie Holiday -- or "Lady Day" as she was often called -- performed one of her final shows in a rundown bar in South Philly. In Robertson's award-winning play, Holiday engages the audience with salty and often humorous reminiscences of her troubled life as a traveling performer in the segregated south. With the help of her piano man, Jimmy Powers (played by Award-winning composer-actor Mark Meadows), she lets music tell her story -- sharing soulful, heart-wrenching and bawdy songs from her most memorable canon, including: "Strange Fruit," "God Bless the Child," "When a Woman Loves a Man," "T'Aint Nobody's Business If I Do" and "Gimme a Pigfoot (And a Bottle of Beer)."

What does "home" mean and what will we do to protect it? As Noura and her husband Tareq prepare to celebrate their first Christmas as American citizens, she looks forward to welcoming a special guest -- Maryam, a young Iraqi refugee. But the girl's arrival upends the family, forcing them to confront where they are, where they've been and who they have become. "Noura" challenges our notions of modern marriage and motherhood through a portrait of Iraqi immigrants living in New York. In this world-premiere production, award-winning playwright and performer Heather Raffo ("Nine Parts of Desire") draws on personal stories of Arab American women responding to "A Doll's House", Henrik Ibsen's classic drama of one mother's quest to balance her duty with her identity. "Noura" is presented at D.C.'s Lansburgh Theatre as part of the Women's Voices Theater Festival. [less-]
