About this show

The Meatball Chronicles follows one woman through humorous and sometimes heart-wrenching meals that align with stories of her childhood, her relationships with men, and in particular, her complicated relationship to her mother. Debrianna Mansini crafts this piece in a way that transcends her own story into universal themes that anyone who has a family can love. As she kneads the dough and thickens the sauce through each Italian recipe, the stories associated with those recipes reveal the complex ways that families cope, laugh, grieve, and show their love through food.
