“Down Past Passyunk” recreates a fictional cheesesteak shop, complete with grill, and explores the changing face of South Philly. The play centers on longtime owner Nicky Grillo who is embroiled in a public relations nightmare ever since he asked one of his customers to “speak English” when ordering a cheesesteak.
As he watches his community rapidly diversify, Nicky pits himself against his spirited daughter, his oldest friend and a popular new Mexican steak shop across the street. In an effort to keep his neighborhood “All-American,” Nicky goes to extraordinary lengths triggering unforeseen consequences.
