Meet the Cast of Among the Dead by Hansol Jung

unnamed
Ana is an ex-daughter summoned to Korea to retrieve her suddenly dead father’s ashes. Luke is an American soldier sent to Myanmar to survive a world war he probably shouldn’t have volunteered for. Number Four is a Korean comfort woman camping out on a bridge in Seoul, waiting for Luke. Jesus is a bellboy. Three wars of three eras folded into one hotel room, Among the Dead is a dark comedy about a family broken apart by betrayed promises and finding each other through SPAM, journals, and Jesus. Mostly Jesus.

 

This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: Co-op, HERE’s curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.
