Next Stop North Korea Poster

Playwright and foreign policy expert John Feffer performed excerpts from his new one-man show, Next Stop: North Korea. A panel discussion followed the performance that included Seung-Hee Nah, Chair of the Korean American Sharing Movement's Board, Catherine Killough, the Roger L. Hale Fellow at Ploughshares Fund, and Ryan Oh, born in North Korea and Student at Korea University in Seoul, who talked about North Korea today, US-North Korean relations, and the prospects for peace on the Korean peninsula.

How far would you travel to help other people? How many compromises would you make?

In this new one-man show, acclaimed playwright and performer John Feffer brings audiences as close to North Korea as they can get without a visa and an airplane ticket. Based on his visits to the country and the work he did there, Feffer explores the challenges of doing good in a morally ambiguous environment. He takes you inside Kim Il Sung’s mausoleum, up and down the Tower of the Juche Idea, out to the North Korean countryside, and into the hearts and minds of North Koreans themselves. Follow along as this “brilliant writer and performer” (Washington City Paper) brings you on an alternately funny, sobering, and thrilling trip of a lifetime.
