Adirondack Theatre Festival: Eastbound
When Calvin, a twenty-something Chinese-American adoptee, is given six months to live, he decides to make good on his lifelong dream of seeing his home country with the little time he has left. But unbeknownst to him, Calvin’s long-lost brother Yu is traveling from China to New York City to live his own dream—and while the two may have never met, each must choose between the life they’ve lived… and the one that may still lie ahead of them.
Transcending language and cultural boundaries, Eastbound’s contemporary score fuses with Mandopop to tell this unforgettable story of discovery, identity, and the destinies we never knew awaited us.
