Reviews

“An artful examination of the emotional price of immigration.  Directed with sensitivity & spirit by Eric Ting! The Far Country  meditates on ethnicity & identity; an act, loving and sorrowful, of reclamation.”

Alexis Soloski,  THE NEW YORK TIMES

 

★★★★

Suh succinctly & humorously covers 21 years from Taishan to San Francisco. ”

melissa rose bernardo, time out

 

“Enlightening, sobering, even at times enraging! Sets the stage alight with dramatic tension, gripped as we find ourselves hoping.” Editor’s Pick!

Kenji fujishima, theatermania

A graceful & haunting account! There is also warmth and humor in The Far Country, Suh is interested in the resilience of the human spirit.

elysa Gardner, NY Sun

 

An intimate & revealing look at the immigrant experience. The actors deliver the overarching message of triumphing over adversity and bigotry with steadfast endurance.

Deb miller, DC metro Theater Arts

 

“Lyrical and thought provoking! Suh’s script is beautiful & Ting’s direction inspired.”

ERin Kahn, Stage Buddy

 

“Director Eric Ting guides a uniformly excellent cast! Suh’s strength is his ability to mix realism and poetic elements.”

Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Theatre Guide

 

“Tops anything imagined by Franz Kafka! Jiyoun Chang’s lighting of Clint Ramos’ impressive set imbues moments with breathtaking beauty!”
