“Hansol Jung is a writer of industrious imagination with a poet’s gift” New York Times

“Whimsical, powerful and poignant… a senses-tingling treat” New York Magazine

Michael Boyd directs Hansol Jung’s fascinating and unforgettable twenty-first century love story.

Two lonely people from two divided cultures meet on an online dating site. Guk Minsung is a “goose father”, a South Korean man whose wife and daughter have moved to America in search of a better life. Yoo Nanhee is a young defector from North Korea and haunted by memories of the father she left behind.

Minsung (Mister Gooseman) and Nanhee (Miner’s Daughter) struggle to find quiet intimacy and genuine connection amidst the endless cacophony of the digital age.

Featuring a chorus, music and a penguin, this is a lyrical, darkly humorous and strikingly original play which receives its UK premiere in the Ustinov Studio direct from an acclaimed off-Broadway run.

Hansol Jung is a playwright and director from South Korea whose other works include Cardboard Piano, Among the Dead and No More Sad Things.

Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company from 2002 to 2012, Michael Boyd’s recent productions include Tamburlaine for the RSC and The Open House, Right Now and The Big Mealat the Ustinov Studio.
