Motherhood Transcends Cultures at SD Rep's Production of The Oldest Boy

It's Date Night! We're headed to the San Diego REPertory Theare (San Diego REP) for the Southern California Premiere of “The Oldest Boy” by Sarah Ruhl.

“We are excited to continue San Diego Rep’s 40th Anniversary Season with the production of ‘The Oldest Boy,’” says Sam Woodhouse, artistic director and co-founder, San Diego REPertory Theatre. “This production is a bewitching and beautiful meditation on motherhood, love and letting go as two parents decide whether their 3-year-old son should move to India to train as a Buddhist master. What’s great about this show is it mixes multiple mediums of not just music and dance but also puppetry. Also featured is Tsering Dorjee Bawa, who is a ‘quadruple’ threat singer/dancer/actor/choreographer, is Tibetan, trained at the famous Tibetan school in Dharamsala and may be the only professional Tibetan actor in America. Audiences will certainly be delighted to see our production of ‘The Oldest Boy.’”

Previews begin Thursday, Nov. 12, 2015 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 6, 2015 in the Lyceum Space.
