Everything is right with the world. Or is it?
In the aftermath of World War II, a young soldier named Dang returns to his village in the jungles surrounding Bangkok to reunite with his wife and newborn baby. He is finally home. So why does he feel utterly alone?
We’re thrilled to present The Return by Kavin Panmeechao — a new work based upon the Thai legend Mae Nahg and commissioned by the Playhouse for the radio. Presented in partnership with WSHU Public Radio; with original music, sound design, and audio production by John Gromada. Make sure to tune into the broadcast to catch an interview with playwright Kavin Panmeechao!

MEET THE CAST
The Return is a ghost story which is as heartbreaking as it is suspenseful. I have no doubt that Kavin’s retelling of this chilling legend will echo in your ears long after the broadcast ends.
