About this show

Written and performed by Esther K. Chae, So the Arrow Flies is about Catherine, a North Korean double spy and the Korean American FBI Agent Park that discovers and exposes Catherine's espionage scheme. The play also includes Catherine's 12 year old daughter Mina, and Agent Park's elderly mother Mrs. Park, who has survived the Korean war. With only a turn on one chair, the actor plays all 4 roles to tell the stories of each individual. So the Arrow Flies touches on the post-9/11 themes of political ideology, national identities, allegiance, torture, hubris and ultimately love for one's family, and blazes the way for a dynamic new voice in solo performance.
