Full description - Salt Pepper Ketchup

A layer of bulletproof glass won’t protect Superstar Chinese Take-Out from the gentrification consuming South Philly. When a trendy food co-op opens nearby, the Wus and their customers initially see it as a hipster annoyance, but as tensions mount they begin to recognize the intrusion as an act of war. Tinged with genuine humor and pathos, Josh Wilder’s play examines the very human consequences of neighborhood redevelopment — who benefits and who gets chewed up and spit out?
