Interview: Yurié Collins and Sharon Omi about “The Great Wave” at Berkeley Rep

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.
