The Public Theater has now confirmed complete casting for the previously announced New York premiere of Wild Goose Dreams - a co-production with La Jolla Playhouse - which begins previews at the Public's Martinson Hall on October 30, 2018, ahead of an official opening on November 14 and a limited engagement through to December 9, 2018.

The cast of Wild Goose Dreams includes (in alphabetical order) Dan Domingues (as Chorus), Lulu Fall (as Digital Nanhee/Chorus), Kendyl Ito (as Heejin/Chorus), Francis Jue (as Father), Peter Kim (as Guk Minsung), Michelle Krusiec (as Yoo Nanhee), Jaygee Macapugay (as Wife/Chorus), Joél Pérez (as Digital Minsung/Chorus), Jamar Williams (as Chorus), and Katrina Yaukey (as Chorus).

Wild Goose Dreams is written by Hansol Jung and directed by Leigh Silverman.

Synopsis: "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."

The creative team features scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Keith Parham, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, composition by Paul Castles, Korean music composition by Jongbin Jung, movement direction by Yasmine Lee, and music supervision by Charity Wicks.

Wild Goose Dreams Tickets are available now for performances from October 30 through to December 9, 2018.
