How to Be a Korean Woman is a hilarious, heartfelt and personal telling of Korean-American adoptee Sun Mee Chomet’s (The Burial at Thebes, The Intelligent Homosexual…, The Two Gentlemen of Verona) search for her birth family in Seoul, South Korea. This poignant one-woman show — told from the perspective of an adult adoptee — uses text, music and movement to explore themes of family, love, adulthood and the universal longing to know one’s past. On the heels of Chomet’s two sold-out Twin Cities engagements, the Guthrie is thrilled to welcome her groundbreaking production to the Dowling Studio for just five performances.
Run time: 80 minutes with no intermission.
This production includes strong language and is recommended for ages 14 and older.
