CHUN Seung-sae’s Manseon is the dismal record and the sad scenery of people who live by the sea at the furthest edge of the land. For them, there are no other places to retreat, and the vast sea contrasts with the vulnerability of their lives. But the waves will eventually die down, and life will continue. This repertoire is firmly inscribed in the 70-year history of the National Theater and comes back with a more solid stage this season, by adding contemporary and in-depth interpretations of playwright YUN Mi-hyun. It is also further complemented by SHIM Jae-chan’s perceptive direction and the high energy of the best actors.
