Unit Set/Multiple Settings

To the outside world, the Lee boys look perfect: Isaac is on track to be a doctor, and his younger brother, Jimmy, is a champion swimmer. But when their widowed father, Boo-Seng, decides to take them on a road trip to Durango, Colorado, the carefully constructed facades of all three begin to crack. As they near their destination, tempers flare, old wounds reopen and secrets are re-vealed. DURANGO is the story of a man who sacrificed everything—a home, a country—for the American Dream, and whose sons must now grapple with the consequences of that choice.
"A tender-hearted production." —NY Times. "Cho displays a balance and compassion that's Chekhovian…a writer at the top of her game." —Village Voice. "A marvelously unvarnished, unapologetically small slice of memories, lies, and all else we call family." —BackStage. "Cho's writing is magnificent…the most emotionally shattering play I've seen all year." —NYTheatre.com.
