Daryo's All-American Diner is about its struggling 40-something Asian-American co-owner, May Daryo, whose life is transformed after a violent attack on her family during the height of the pandemic. This Full-Length Drama set in the fictional midwestern city of Lakeside, IL., explores how something positive and hopeful can come out of a traumatic act of violence.

Colloquy with the Playwright & Artists will follow.
