Soho Theatre and Akbar Kurtha present

This Isn’t Romance

By In-Sook Chappell
12 February – 7 March, 7.30pm
Soho Theatre | 21 Dean St | Soho | London W1D 3NE


In-sook Chappell was born in Seoul and brought up in Essex. Now living in London, she worked as an actor and a model before turning to playwriting. This is her theatre debut, having won the Verity Bargate Award 2007 with this play.

The play is set amidst the Seoul sex industry, in a world of hookers, fast money and sex sold by the hour, in which an Anglo-Korean model searches for the love she lost twenty-five years ago, and a place they can call home.

Identity, sex, twisted revenge: an Anglo-Korean model returns to Seoul to find the brother she abandoned when adopted as a child.
