Cardboard Piano

New Conservatory Theatre Center

NCTC looks at global LGBTQI human rights with Cardboard Piano by South Korean playwright Hansol Jung, winner of the 2018 Whiting Award. 16-year-old Chris just wants to find a safe place to live with the girl she loves - not an easy task in 1999 Uganda. Determined to be together, Chris, the daughter of American missionaries and Adiel, a local girl, meet in the village church to marry in secret. When the war outside the church walls breaks its way into their sanctuary in the form of a wounded child-soldier, all three lives become tied together forever.


This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman had to say about Cardboard Piano :

Teenage Chris, the daughter of white missionaries in Uganda, is in love with a village girl; the two marry in secret. But it’s 1999, and there’s a war, and into the mix comes a wounded child soldier. The three form a bond. Hansol Jung’s four-actor drama, which premiered at the Humana Festival in 2016, is about faith, love and politics. Tom Bruett directs for New Conservatory.
