Featuring James Ijames

How does a computer scientist hook up with a molecular biologist? He blinds her with science, of course. When Elliot builds a computer program to help Molly with her research project, the variables in their evolving relationship shift as rapidly as the terms of their experiement. This deft and imaginative ROM-comedy shows that even the most sophisticated algorithm may freeze in the face of life's infinite possibilities.

"Dramatically compelling and refreshingly hilarious." - LA Weekly

Ana is a Korean American who travels to Seoul in 1975 to retrieve her recently deceased father’s ashes. Luke is a young American soldier fighting in the jungles of Myanmar in 1944. Number Four is the name of a Korean comfort woman camping out on a bridge in Seoul in 1950, waiting for the return of the young American soldier who fathered her daughter. Three separate time periods collide in a small hotel room in Korea, mediated by a shape-shifting Jesus who first shows up as a bellboy. Among the Dead is a dark comedy about a family broken apart by betrayed promises, and finding each other again through SPAM, journals, and Jesus. Mostly Jesus.
 
“With this outraged, deeply compassionate play, Ms. Jung is kicking, and expanding our understanding.” - The New York Times
