Eager to leave behind her suburban US life, Amy moves abroad to explore the world. But when sudden events force her to return, she navigates a more personal terrain, compelling her to reflect on her identities as an American, transracial adoptee, and woman of color, as she seeks to define what home really is.

Amy Mihyang Ginther (Writer/Performer) has lived, taught, and performed in the US, UK, Ireland, South Korea, Vietnam, Czech Republic, Argentina, Malaysia, and South Korea. Homeful has been performed in London and UC Santa Cruz, where she works as a professor. Amy has designed accents and coached voice for Aurora Theatre Company, Jewel Theatre Company, Seoul Shakespeare Company, the National Youth Theatre, and the Welcoming Ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Amy has been featured on Tedx, was on the cover of The New York Times Magazine, and has been referenced in Reuters, Al Jazeera, The Wall Street Journal, KoreAm, and The Toast. amymihyangginther.com
