Obie Award winning Asia-American playwright David Henry Hwang takes us inside the world of America's first and second generation Chinese immigrants living in L.A in the late seventies. Focusing on cousins Grace and Dale, FOB (fresh of the boat) exposes the tension and hilarity that arises from wanting to fit in, versus the struggle of holding on to cultural identity. When a mysterious traveller named Steve arrives at Graces's family restaurant, everything the cousins know about themselves is called into question: Is what they have built for themselves more important than where they have come from? will they ever truly belong? And who is the traveller: Steve, the famous warrior Gwan Gung, or just another FOB? PAT Theatre Company delivers an edgy and fresh look at this classic Asian American play which bleeds the line between epic legendary tales and harsh modern realities, leaving us with questions about our own beloved multicultural society.
