About Wild Goose Dreams:

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? Wild Goose Dreams ​is a strikingly original play with music about two people, from two cultures, forced to choose between family and freedom.

They tried to make it work, but they should really get a divorce. Individually, they’re terrific. But they don’t belong together. He’s a little bit binary, she’s a little bit Grimm’s Fairy Tales. I know, I know,...
