The Farewell

Willard Straight Theatre
Saturday, Oct 19, 2019 at 7:00 PM (ET)

Chinese-born, U.S. raised Billi (Awkwafina) returns home to
Changchunwith other family members to bid farewell to their beloved
matriarch, Nai Nai, who doesn’t know she has a terminal illness, in this
funny, autobiographical tale. In order to keep Nai Nai in the dark, the
family concocts a made-up wedding to explain why the entire family has
arrived in Changchun. The tender tale of deception also offered a way
for director Lulu Wang, who was six when she left China for the U.S., to
articulate the nuances of her experience as an immigrant, and portray
how food is a way to connect with a place that was once home.
