My play Memory is a Culinary Affair had a succesful run on August 18, 20 and 21 at Manhattan Repertory Theatre in New York City.
The three shows were sold out and there was a waiting list.
Memory is a Culinary Affair explores the impact of the 1970's dictatorship in Argentina through the eyes of Carina, who was a small child at the time. Now in her mid-30s and living in New York, Carina must decide whether to return to Argentina and her former boyfriend, who is still in love with her, or to stay in New York and make a new life with her current boyfriend. As she ponders her choices, Carina must confront the scars left by events that tore her family apart during her childhood. Her family is Jewish.
A Spanish-language version of the play was a recipient of an award in the 2007 MetLife Nuestras Voces National Playwriting Competition at Repertorio Espanol.
