The Meatball Chronicles follows one woman through humorous and sometimes heart wrenching meals that align with stories of her childhood, her relationships with men, and in particular, her complicated relationship to her mother.

Mansini crafts this piece in a way that transcends her own story into universal themes that anyone who has a family can love. As she kneads the dough and thickens the sauce through each Italian recipe, the stories associated with those recipes reveal the complex ways that families cope, laugh, grieve, and show their love through food.

Debrianna Mansini has been seen in both film and television in; Hell or High Water, Crazy Heart, Breaking Bad, and Better Call Saul, to name a few. She is also an actor, creator, and co-writer of the web series Cyphers and the upcoming Reaction 21. She is a New York trained actor with a passion for activism. “I believe deeply in using my skills to promote community and consciousness.”

"“The Meatball Chronicles” is so artfully written and beautifully performed that the stories Debrianna shares, even the painful or shameful ones, are magical gifts to her audience. They promote healing and understanding in the way a late-night, sweet conversation with a best friend in a kitchen still overwhelmed by the delicious humming scents of the day can only do."
