In the world premiere of The Supreme Leader, written by Don X. Nguyen, audiences follow Kim Jong-Un while in boarding school in Switzerland as he learns he’s next in line following his older brother’s career-ending trip to Tokyo Disneyland. Under the watchful eye of his minder, he sets his paintbrush aside to spy on his pretty American friend Sophie. Will “Oony” get the girl? Will he make his father proud?

Set in the snow globe world of stinky cheese and mountain climbing, this coming-of-age comedy imagines Kim Jong-Un's final throes of youth before his fateful return to North Korea. Performances will take place in the Studio Theatre at Wyly Theatre.
