The Great Wave archiveAn epic play set in Japan and North Korea. On a dark and stormy night two sisters, Hanako and Reiko, are swept away by a gigantic wave. Reiko survives while Hanako is, seemingly, lost to the sea. Their mother, however, can't shake the feeling her daughter is still alive. Dorfman Theatre. The Great Wave won the Catherine Johnson Award (2016), and renews Turnly's collaboration with the Tricycle Theatre - in 2014 he was awarded the Channel 4 Playwright in Residence, joining the Tricycle Theatre for a residency throughout 2015.
