Sam's Tea Shack

About the Show

Steeped in a reverence for the F train as the new Silk Road, SAM'S TEA SHACK is an Ashkenazi Jewish boy’s fantasy he is amongst his ancestors: central Asian nomads. In this malleable exchange between audience and Sam, he serves tea, talks about the neighborhood, Persian emperors, going to high school with Lin-Manuel Miranda, dumplings and samosas, and whatever is on your mind--it's a piece about cultural identity vs. national identity. It's a comedy.
