Local playwright Sun Mee Chomet to stage her one-woman play in D.C.

January 4 @ 12:00 CST - January 14 @ 12:00 CST

Twin Cities actor Sun Mee Chomet will perform her one-woman play How to Be a Korean Woman, at Theater J in Washington D.C., from January 4 through 14.
How to Be a Korean Woman is part-commentary and part-satire on the experiences of  a Korean American adoptee woman who returns to Korea for the first time, including all the high expectations she has of visiting Korea, and the high expectations that Koreans, particularly other Korean women, have about her.  It is also a cautionary tale, told with humor,  about making assumptions about others’ cultures and experiences, and a commentary about the complexity of being a Korean adoptee.
Theater J will stage two other one-person plays along with Chomet’s play in a series entitled Here I Am: A Triptych of Tour-de-Force Performances.  The other two plays are:  Moses, by Michelle Lowe; and See You Tomorrow by Iris Bahr.  Chomet was recently interviewed by The Washington Post about the three-play series.
Performance times and costs are varied, please consult the Theater J website for further information.
