Written by award-winning playwright Joyce Van Dyke, The Golden Door is set in an Armenian grocery store in a transitional Boston neighborhood. Ani, the third-generation Armenian-American owner, runs the failing store with her Italian-American husband, Marco.

Unexpected events bring immigrants from Mexico, China and the Caribbean along with descendants of immigrants from Eastern Europe and Ireland into the store. As the customers struggle to honor their heritage while trying to fit in as Americans, they change not only the way they see each other, but also the future of the store.
