Amy Mihyang is a Korean woman adopted from a very young age by an American family and brought up in New York. In her monologue she takes us through her life to date and introduces us to the issues she’s faced growing up in a foreign land and how she has dealt with them.
Within the narrative Amy also describes her journey to Korea to meet her birth mother. We don’t learn much about that meeting but Amy does read from the real letters that she and her birth mother have exchanged.
It’s a poignant and interesting story, even for members of the audience who have not faced these issues personally, and I'm sure this play will have additional resonance for anyone with similar experiences to Amy's. (Alistair Rutherford)
