The Far Country at Berkeley Rep

Came home for the first day of school.

By Lloyd Suh

Directed by Jennifer Chang

West Coast Premiere

Berkeley Rep, Peet's Theatre

Mar 8—Apr 14, 2024

Following a critically acclaimed debut in New York, Pulitzer Prize finalist Lloyd Suh brings The Far Country back to its roots in a triumphant West Coast premiere. In the wake of the Chinese Exclusion Act, Moon Gyet has arrived at San Francisco Bay's Angel Island Immigration Station with an invented biography and a new name, both given to him by a man who made the same arduous crossing several years earlier. But passage to San Francisco — and the dream of a better life for future generations — commands a very high price. Spanning two countries and three generations, Lloyd Suh's breathtaking account of immigration, identity, and memory has been called " act, loving and sorrowful, of reclamation" by The New York Times.
