How are you so sure?
As they attempt to flee the Best Nation in the World, North Korean sisters Minhee and Junhee are torn apart at the border. Each must race across time and space to be together again - navigating the perilous Land of the Free and the treacherous terrain of personal belief.
Food has learned to sprint. Money is so fast it doesn't wait to be printed. Gossip travels swifter than germs.
You For Me For You was first presented in the US at Woolly Mammoth Theatre, Washington D.C., in Autumn 2012 and received its UK premiere at London's Royal Court in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs on 3 December 2015.
