About this show

Can Fiestaware ? those colorful Depression-era ceramic plates, cups, and bowls ? help illuminate the secrets of human relationships? Can it serve as a metaphor for ideological acceptance in the modern world, and bring civil discourse back to a divided country? When an obsessive collector of vintage Fiestaware sets off in search of the perfect specimens, he finds surprising connections between residents of "red" and "blue" states through a series of remarkable encounters, as well as some startling divides within his own family as he announces his intention to marry his same-sex partner. But in the world of Fiesta, there are no mis-matched pairs. Everything is different and yet everything fits. In his comedic cross-country travels, and around his family's dinner table, he ultimately finds hope and acceptance ? as well as some fabulous serving bowls! The brilliant Larry Cedar plays over twenty roles in this funny, touching, thought-provoking, and extraordinary tour de force.
