What's more American than kimchi and cornfields?

Directed by Katrin Hilbe †

A Sundays@Six Series Reading in The Jewel Box Theater

Just east of normal, 25-year-old Lionel is still at home with his parents—part-time job, online girlfriend, mom who makes kimchi. When mom retreats into the cornfields, a young Korean woman materializes in the yard. Mom camps under the moon. The visitor usurps Lionel's room. Dad—the jerk—won’t drive him to work. What's a half-Korean, all-American kid to do?
