Familium Vulgare

Familium Vulgare is a play about an Asian American family, the individual rituals we create for ourselves, and the power of the collective ritual. 

 

Familium Vulgare is a play about an Asian American family--a Buddhist scholar, an amateur filmmaker, and a budding entomologist--navigating the rough waters of life after an unexpected death.  It's also about the individual rituals we create for ourselves, and the power of the collective ritual.
