Liébling, a reading

New Ground Theatre Festival

Acclaimed author Sovanna has hit a wall with his writing and his relationship. At the encouragement of his partner, Leo, the two travel to Cleveland for a change of scenery and much needed respite. Immediately, Sovanna encounters the cantankerous Hungarian/German/Cambodian ghost of Leo's grandmother. Trying to live beside a specter while also offering to mentor a young visual artist, an overwhelmed Sovanna finds himself on an unexpected journey towards the truth of his present situation. A witty and moving story of how we grapple with legacy and representation--and how art can help us navigate both.
