Media Coverage

Cuckoo feels like a peculiar kind of dream, a communication from your subconscious, offering some truth you’ll never be able to translate into words.”

Henry Gleaden,, 2019-02-15

“The piece is beautifully constructed, with different sections each adding another layer to our understanding of recent history and contemporary life in South Korea.”

Dorothy Max Prior,

“A week later, I’m still haunted by the show’s sounds and images.”

Dorothy Max Prior,

“Playwright Jaha Koo’s Cuckoo tells the heart-rending tale of South Korea’s recent history.”

Gilles Michiels, De Standaard, 2018
