WALLEYE KID

by R.A. SHIOMI & SUNDRAYA KASE
directed by RICK SHIOMI

October 15 - November 1, 1998

 

A modern American Fable inspired by Korean and Japanese folktales. A Korean girl miraculously appears as a baby out of a huge walleye, is adopted by the couple that caught the fish and takes a magical journey back to the land of her birth.

“We gave Annie the ability to use her imagination to look for her own identity as a Korean adoptee.  Her magical trip to Korean is in some ways influenced by my own jourey back to Korean last year.” — Sundraya Kase
