What if I said I am not what you think you see?
A southpaw boxer is on the verge of their pro debut when their wife signs the adoption papers for a Korean boy. The boy's original adoptive father was all set to hand him over to a new home… until he realizes the boy would have no “dad.” Caught in the middle, the child launches himself in a lone wolf's journey of finding a pack he can call his own.
Wolf Play is a mischievous and affecting new play about the families we choose and unchoose. It is published in Methuen Drama's Lost Plays series, celebrating new plays that had productions postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the global shutdown of theatre spaces.
“Jung is in a class of her own… The play simultaneously celebrates our extraordinary capacity for love, exposes our nastiest inclinations toward selfishness, and admonishes the injustices of our social systems.” —Broadway World
“Thoughtful and funny...brings the distracting, confusing noise of the internet to a funny and sensitive story of lonely hearts in Seoul” —The Guardian (on Wild Goose Dreams)
