Donald and his wife Marvelous have been living the American Dream since emigrating from Zimbabwe nearly three decades ago. They have a beautiful house and impressive careers, and now one of their daughters is getting married! But when the bride insists on a traditional African wedding ceremony, tensions start to rise. Throw in an eccentric aunt from the old country and a bewildered bridegroom, and soon it's not certain the couple will ever make it down the aisle.

"Familiar," takes a funny, warmhearted look at tradition, marriage and what it means to be an American family.

The New York Times calls it "an engrossing, fiercely funny comedy-drama that probes with subtlety and smarts."

7:00 PM Stage: Aubergine San Diego Repertory Theatre presents "Aubergine," an unforgettable story of love, family and the healing power of food.​

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.

The show runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 17, 2019, in the Lyceum Space Theatre in Horton Plaza. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the San Diego REP Box Office, by calling the box office at (61) 544-1000, or online at sdrep.org
