Former CASUALTY actress Crystal Yu is currently appearing in ‘Wild Goose Dreams’ at the Theatre Royal, Bath until 21st December.
Michael Boyd directs Hansol Jung’s fascinating and unforgettable twenty-first century love story.
Two lonely people from two divided cultures meet on an online dating site. Guk is a “goose father”, a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America in search of a better life. Yoo is a young defector from North Korea, haunted by memories of the father she left behind.
The would-be lovers struggle to find quiet intimacy and genuine connection amidst the endless cacophony of the digital age.
Featuring a chorus, music and a penguin, this is a lyrical, darkly humorous and strikingly original play which receives its UK premiere in the Ustinov Studio direct from an acclaimed off-Broadway run.
The cast also includes Jessie Baek (Secret Cinema); Jon Chew (The King and I, London Palladium); stand-up comedian and actor Rick Kiesewetter; London Kim (The Departed, Letters from Iwo Jima and Brooklyn Nine-Nine); Vincent Lai (The Great Wave, National Theatre); Chuja Seo (Stella in A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by James Franco in Los Angeles) and Momo Yeung (the West End cast of The Lion King).
