Counting and Cracking


The Public Theater presents a Belvoir St Theatre & Kurinji Co-Production, in partnership with NYU Skirball


The multi-generational journey of a Sri-Lankan Australian family from 1956-2004. Radha fled Sri Lanka with her unborn child as the nation struggled with conflict. Two decades later, her son Siddhartha, now an Australian man who knows little of his family’s background, receives a call from the past that changes everything he thought he knew, and who he thought he was.
