The Great Wave

Roda Theatre

Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, plus one 15-minute intermission

Spanning over 20 years and the two vastly different countries of Japan and North Korea, The Great Wave is at once a riveting geopolitical thriller and a powerful story of the unshakable bonds between a mother, a daughter, and a sister who refuse to give up hope.
