Wolf Play Information

Following an acclaimed world premiere in 2022, Hansol Jung's Wolf Play returns off Broadway for an encore run with MCC Theater. Check back for information on Wolf Play tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Wolf Play is inspired by the phenomenon of "re-homing," in which adoptive parents give their child away to new guardians — often by unsanctioned, underground means. So it goes for Jeenu, a six-year-old Korean boy who is "re-homed" by way of a Yahoo message board when his adoptive parents have a biological child. Tensions boil over between his new guardians, a queer couple whose relationship is already fraying, and his old ones, who suddenly worry for Jeenu's upbringing without a father.

All the while, Jeenu retreats into himself, imagining himself as a lone wolf in search of a place, and a pack, to call home. Wolf Play off Broadway explores the many different ways families are found, formed, and broken.

Jung wrote Wolf Play after reading articles about similar real-life situations, and the play went up with Soho Rep in 2022. Previously, Jung was represented in New York with Among the Dead at HERE Arts Center. Her other shows include Wild Goose Dreams, No More Sad Things, and Cardboard Piano. These, alongside Wolf Play, have all made the Kilroys List, which annually honors excellent, underproduced plays by non-male writers.

Directing Wolf Play in New York once again is Dustin Wills, a director of theatre and opera who's worked at The Public Theater, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and more.
