The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat is a patchwork of twenty short scenes revolving around an unuttered question: what are human relationships made of?

A woman wants a divorce because there was never any love between her and her husband, on her wedding day a bride discovers her fiancé had an affair with each of her four sisters, a mother is stunned when she learns her husband is happy with their son joining the army and risking his life at war, two best friends get into a savage fight because one of them recalls their first encounter, a prostitute bargains down her services to hook a client-

 What are those bonds that lead us to love, hate, help, betray, care, flee, fight, abuse or lie? Each scene explores situations where a relationship is challenged, drawing us into a maze where appeased relations between humans seem as primal, desirable and quixotic as the reunification of the two Koreas.

The Reunification Of The Two Koreas is a co-production between TheatreWorks and Centre Dramatique National de Tours (CDNT). It is directed by Jacques Vincey, Artistic Director of CDNT, translated into English by Marc Goldberg, and performed by Cynthia Lee Macquarrie, Ebi Shankara, Karen Tan, Janice Koh, Pavan J Singh, Tan Shou Chen, Timothy Nga, Umi Kalthum Ismail and Zelda Tatiana Ng.


TheatreWorks presents its 2018 Season, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, with two plays – 13.13.13 by Shen Tan and The Reunification Of The Two Koreas by Joël Pommerat.
