WILD GOOSE DREAMS is a new play by Hansol Jung (Among the Dead). Minsung is a “goose father,” a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to the United States 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 (Violet, Chinglish, The Outer Space) directs this strikingly original play about two people, and two cultures, forced to choose between family and freedom.
