and ultimately moving"
THE WASHINGTON POST
BY FRANCES YA-CHU COWHIG
The Chinese Goddess of Mercy and the Monkey King think they control the Land of the Dead until their newest arrival, a Chinese-American boy, defies the system. Can an arcade dance game be the only thing that stands between the boy and his transmigration? Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig’s dark and dazzling play about the afterlife explores identity, love and what it takes to forge a new path.
410[GONE] was produced and presented as a part of the main-stage 2017-18 Season by Rorschach Theatre Company at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC.
