About this show

A layer of bulletproof glass won't protect superstar Chinese take-out owners from the gentrification consuming the Point Breeze neighborhood in South Philly. When a trendy food co-op opens nearby, the Wu's and their customers initially see it as a hipster annoyance, but as tensions mount, they begin to recognize the intrusion as an act of war. Tinged with genuine humor and pathos, Josh Wilder's play Salt Pepper Ketchup examines the very human consequences of neighborhood redevelopment — who benefits and who gets chewed up and spit out?
