Hansol Jung, whose plays “knit together the agonies of Korean history, the restless excitement and anxiety of the tech age, and the shapes of loss and longing,” is a playwright and director from South Korea. Jung’s productions include Cardboard Piano, Among the Dead, No More Sad Things, Wolf Play, and Wild Goose Dreams. Jung holds an M.F.A. in playwriting from Yale School of Drama and is a proud member of the Ma-Yi Theatre Writers Lab.
