Yurié Collins and Sharon Omi, in conversation with KPFA associate theater critic C.S. Soong.
Sharon Omi and Yurié Collins play a mother and daughter residing in a Japanese coastal town in “The Great Wave,” a play by Francis Turnly now at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. In “The Great Wave,” the family tragedy of a young woman’s disappearance takes on the added dimension of a political thriller, one rooted in the fraught relationship between Japan and North Korea. Turnly’s play, directed by Mark Wing-Davey, runs through October 27.
Berkeley Repertory Theatre is located at 2025 Addison Street in Berkeley.
