About the new work playwright Park said in a statement, "When Ju Yeon's brother unexpectedly dies, she must leave her family in New York and take her brother's ashes to Korea. Her husband doesn't want her to go, her children want to run away from home, and her parents just hope she returns before their time is up. I wanted to explore and write about a family in-between cultures, immigrant life, and the universality of dealing with family crisis, love and loss."
Show times are Feb. 14 at 7 PM and Feb. 15 at 5 PM.
