wAve was created and toured with Boom for Yellow Earth’s Autumn 2009 Tour.
Two very different plays by two exciting and talented East Asian writers: Boom by Jean Tay and wAve by Sung Rno. Directed by Yellow Earth’s new Co-Artistic Directors, Philippe Cherbonnier and Jonathan Man, these two plays bring together a fantastic cast that will move you to laughter and tears.
Loosely inspired by the Medea myth and with a chorus of comic characters, this dysfunctional love story veers from madcap farce to tragedy as an isolated Korean immigrant’s dream of a perfect life as an American housewife turns sour.
wAve is a passionate and satirical play exploring the collision of cultures from an award-winning American playwright.
wAve was commissioned by Center Theater Group / Mark Taper Forum’s Asian Theater Project and premiered at Ma-Yi Theater Company.
