"STEVE RODGERS'S new play kneads family drama and intercultural rom-com with traces of desire and sexual violence into intimate and involving theatre."
"Rodgers says the play is funny and uplifting. ''The audience will feel that no matter how far apart you may have drifted from family or your past, it's going to be OK, you can come back together. The play ends with a kind of communion, a literal breaking of bread. Some of the audience might even get fed.''"
