No More Sad Things – Subtle and Scandalous
Lincoln Ave Chicago. Driven by a half-remembered dream of frogs, Jessiee is headed for Maui, looking to escape her troubles. Meanwhile, a conversation with a falling star leads young Kahekili to the water, searching for a wave that he can ride into a better life. When they find each other on a beach under the mahina, their two lives begin to intertwine, but the truth beyond the breakers might just swallow them both. Chicago Tribune - Recommended. Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended.
The key to a love story is that the audience has to want the relationship to work. Even if a couple ends in tragedy, there has to be a sense that the risk they took was worth it, or at least, that the couple could plausibly think so. No More Sad Things , a new play by Korean-born author and musical translator Hansol Jung, currently in a co-world premier with Sideshow Theatre Company and the Boise Contemporary Theater, has an amazing abstract set design by William Boles, which recalls the waves of the Pacific ocean, and is well-directed by Elly Green. Meanwhile in Maui, Kahekili George Infantado dreams that he takes the place of a star, which falls to the beach, and tells him to pursue it. Both of them have been very unhappy lately. Not in the mood to sit around waiting for her to die, Jessiee gets on a plane to Maui, hoping to put behind the sad part of her life.

Playwright Jung joined the cast and crew in Boise to fine-tune script and production elements under the direction of Julie Ritchie, out of Chicago, during rehearsals. There on a Maui beach she meets a beautiful young cliff-diver. They share a sexy, intimate week and a powerful connection, but it's definitely complicated. It's a brave new play by a bold new voice in American theater: intelligent, thought-provoking, and unabashedly contemporary. Clark says, "We are proud to welcome this new work by Hansol Jung, a highly gifted playwright at the beginning of what promises to be a long and celebrated career.
