WILD GOOSE DREAMS at The Public Theater

Joél stars as DIGITAL MINSUNG!

After its initial run in Public Studio, Hansol Jung’s fascinating and unforgettable new play WILD GOOSE DREAMS returns to The Public in a co-production with La Jolla Playhouse, where it had a critically-acclaimed run last season.

Minsung is a “goose father,” a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America for a better life. Deeply lonely, he escapes onto the internet and meets Nanhee, a young defector forced to leave her family behind in North Korea. Amidst the endless noise of the modern world, where likes and shares have taken the place of love and touch, Minsung and Nanhee try their best to be real for each other. But after a lifetime of division and separation, is connection possible?

Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (VioletChinglishThe Outer Space) directs this strikingly original play with music, about two people from two cultures forced to choose between family and freedom.

Performances from Oct 30- Dec 9 2018.
