Fried Mussels: three love stories in one act

Playwright: Jonathan Sun

** Workshopped for the stage at the Yale School of Drama in December 2013.

Advisor: Deborah Stein (Drama Desk Award nominated playwright)

A son mourning the death of his father. A couple at the lowest point of their relationship. A mother trying to apologize to her son. All tied together by a waitress who is just trying to get through her shift. Fried Mussels explores the unconscious positive influence that people have on each other, and the effect of the super-positioning and simultaneity of their interactions as they each sit down for dinner at three adjacent tables in the same restaurant.

Available upon request.
