MEDIA, Penn. — The cast of “Where Is Your Groom? (Pesad Oor Eh)” performed for an enthusiastic crowd in a sold-out show at Delaware County Community College on January 31, in an event hosted by the St. Gregory Armenian Church of Philadelphia.
The comedic play, written and directed by Taleen Babayan, sheds light on relevant and significant issues facing both the younger and older generations of Armenians in the Diaspora, and tackles the themes of assimilation, cultural identity, and ethnic preservation.
“Where Is Your Groom? (Pesad Oor Eh)” crosses ethnic boundaries and delivers shared laughs as it follows the story of an Armenian-American family’s quest to find their daughter a suitable husband in this warm-hearted comedy that shows the lengths one family will go to in order to maintain their ethnic ties while living in America.
“Where Is Your Groom (Pesad Oor Eh)” is a laugh-out-loud comedy of the typical Armenian household,” said Norair Miller of Philadelphia, PA. ”It is a very entertaining, well done play with a hilarious script and I highly recommend seeing it.”
Fellow audience member Silvia Mashikian Manoukian echoed Miller’s sentiments.
