A Theatre C production presented at The Peter Jay Sharp Theater

Ju Yeon, an immigrant living in New York, has distanced herself from her Korean roots. When a sudden crisis hits her family, she must return to Korea and face the parents and the life she abandoned long ago. A dancing spirit caught between the worlds of tradition and modernity guides us through past and present, propelling the family members to their ultimate fates.

“DisOriented's long-distance and generational conflicts are universal...” 
-Patricia Contino, Editor's Pick FlavorPill

“The cast carries the weighty story valiantly and the chemistry between the characters is strong...Virginia] Wing...brilliantly embodies a traditional Korean mother who is bewildered by the ways of the modern world. There is a strong sense of momentum to this production that is the direct result of...clever directorial and design choices.” -Weston Clay, Theatre is Easy

“Park throws a welcome spotlight on this little-considered aspect of American immigrant life. Yanghee (Kyungja) Lee ... is a most welcome presence. Twirling in red and gold, snapping her red fan, she is a touch of warm color in a cold, cruel world.” -Karl Levett, BackStage
