SALT PEPPER KETCHUP, a world premiere by Josh Wilder
Co-Produced with Passage Theatre
A layer of bulletproof glass won’t protect Superstar Chinese Take-Out owners John & Linda Wu from the gentrification consuming South Philly’s Point Breeze neighborhood. When a trendy food co-op opens nearby, the Wu’s and their customers initially see it as a hipster annoyance, but as tensions mount they begin to recognize the intrusion as an act of war. Tinged with genuine humor and pathos, Point Breeze native Josh Wilder’s play examines the very human consequences of neighborhood redevelopment—who benefits, and who gets chewed up and spit out?
