Dhaba on Devon Avenue

Full length: 2M, 3F

World Premiere (Cancelled due to… our world right now?) at Victory Gardens Theater, April 2020.

Dhaba Canteen has been a Devon Avenue institution since the 80s, with their delicious Sindhi food transporting you back to the halcyon days of undivided India. Now, the Chicago restaurant is on the verge of foreclosure. And the family that owns it is ready to go to war over its fate. It’s King Lear meets The Cherry Orchard in this heartwarming story of fathers and daughters, legacy, and survival at all costs.

Listen to a monologue, view the scenic design, and read an excerpt at 3Views Theater.
