Ethnic Kitchen is a documentary drama which tells real life stories of six very different women who all immigrated to Lithuania from different countries and for different reasons. The kitchen in this piece is much more than just a physical space where meals are prepared out of different ingredients. In the context of Aiste Ptakauske’s drama the kitchen is an emotional space of intimacy where a true face of humanity emerges out of scarce crumbs of honesty and compassion.
