Amy Mihyang
Gilded Balloon Teviot

Amy Mihyang is a nice, young student who has a confused background. She was born in South Korea and, at the age of two, given up for adoption by a couple in Albany, New York.

For an hour, she talks about her life with particular reference to the resentment that her abandonment has caused and the racism that she suffered at school.

Despite the rather undifferentiated inclusion of other characters and a story about having a baby that may or may not have been factual, this is pure autobiography of a pleasant but pretty unexceptional lady.

The writer/performer's problems are those faced by many people who have mixed cultural backgrounds and therefore she has little to say that has not been repeated many times before, often by those who have suffered far more unhappiness or cruelty.
