Asian American Theater Company
by Alex Park
directed by Alan S. Quismoro
Evan Cho is a Korean American soldier who has just returned from fighting in the Middle East to find a greater battle at home over his love, his identity, and his masculinity. Although Evan could not bring himself to tell his wife Lindsey that he had become sterile during the war, she greets him with wonderful news: she’s pregnant. Confronted with questions of infidelity and self-doubt, both Evan and Lindsey struggle to maintain the macho bravado that defined their relationship before the war. This is a story that goes beyond the post-traumatic stress that a soldier and his wife experience, and ventures deep into their journey to forgive themselves and to forgive each other.
