Peter Kim and Michelle Krusiec will lead the cast of the New York premiere of Wild Goose Dreams, a new work by Hansol Jung, directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman. The play with music returns to the Public Theater Off-Broadway after its initial run in the Public Studio and an acclaimed engagement at La Jolla Playhouse last season.
In Wild Goose Dreams, two individuals are brought together over the internet through a shared loneliness and longing to connect. Minsung (Kim) is a “goose father,” a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America for a better life; online he meets Nanhee (Krusiec), a young defector forced to leave her family behind in North Korea.
Wild Goose Dreams will play in The Public’s Martinson Hall October 30–December 9 and will officially open November 14.
Completing the cast are Dan Domingues (chorus), Lulu Fall (digital Nanhee/chorus), Kendyl Ito (Heejin/chorus), Francis Jue (father), Jaygee Macapugay (wife/chorus), Joél Pérez (digital Minsung/chorus), Jamar Williams (chorus), and Katrina Yaukey (chorus).
Wild Goose Dreams will feature 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.
