Wolf Play

By Hansol Jung
Directed by Dámaso Rodríguez

March 10, 2019 – April 7, 2019

Morrison Stage

In a world where people struggle to have children, one American couple decides to 'un-adopt' their young Korean son because they have a newborn at home. After an internet chat room search for the right family, the father 're-homes' the boy with a lesbian couple, where one half is desperate for a child and the other half is fighting for her career. As the boy — who thinks he’s a wolf, but is really a puppet – adjusts to his new life, he forms bonds with the unlikeliest of culprits while the rest of the adults squabble about what is ‘best for the child.' Wolf Play is a messy, funny, and moving theatrical experience that grapples with where family allegiance lies.
