Here We Are Here, a wondrous little play by Jiehae Park, was workshopped at BAC. Children act with newspaper ships, Englishman John Harrison sets out to sea to solve the mysteries of longitude, and Elizabeth goes in searching of her missing brother Peter and Malaysia Airlines flight 370. At the heart of the story are some big questions surrounding the eternal unknowns of the universe and the duality we constantly battle between always wanting to know more and yet never knowing enough.
