SAM's TEA SHACK

Atwater Village Theater
3269 Casitas Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90039
 

Steeped in a reverence for the NYC subway system as the new Silk Road, SAM'S TEA SHACK is an Ashkenazi Jewish boy's fantasy he is among his ancestors: central Asian nomads. In this malleable exchange between audience and Sam, he serves tea and snacks, talks about the neighborhood, Persian emperors, fatherhood, drugs, high school plays with Lin-Manuel Miranda, and whatever is on your mind. If you let him, he's determined to cut through the haze and light up the path between the dumpling and the knish once and for all. It's a piece about cultural identity vs. national identity. It's a comedy.  

Sam cares about you. Feel free to interrupt.
