Event Description

Among the Dead by Hansol Jung  

Title: Among the Dead by Hansol Jung

Location: 1340 S. 13thstreet, Philadelphia PA 19147

Date: May 2-26

Time: Mon-Thurs - 7pm, Fri & Sat- 8pm, Sunday- 3pm

Description:Among the Deadis a dark and poignant comedy about a family broken apart by betrayed promises and finding each other again through SPAM, journals, and Jesus. A shape-shifting Jesus serves as the intermediary of this story, which weaves together three separate time periods through one central location – a small hotel room in Korea. Among the Deadfollows a young American soldier fighting in the jungles of Myanmar in 1944; a Korean “comfort woman” in 1950s Seoul awaiting the return of the American soldier who fathered her daughter; and a young Korean American woman traveling to Seoul in 1975 to retrieve her recently deceased father’s ashes.

 

“Comedy of the laugh-out-loud variety is the surprising top note in Hansol Jung’s surreal, somberly titled “Among the Dead,” a smart and stinging new play that delves into painful business indeed.” – The New York Times

 

Cost: Ticket prices range from $10-$40
