It has already been eight years since Diana Son's play "Stop Kiss" became one of the longest-running non-musicals in the history of public theater.

Korean-American dramatist Ms. Son has debuted a new play entitled "Satellites" on June 18th that has grabbed attention from audiences at the same theater in Manhattan.

"Satellites" received high praises in an article in the New York Times on June 20th noting that the play portrayed well a disordered American social order while retaining a touch of humanity.

The play depicts the rough life of Nina, a Korean American woman who faces cultural differences and struggles in the urban jungle of New York while living with her African American husband, Miles. Nina and Miles have just moved to Manhattan with their newborn daughter in the play, where they fact a variety of challenges.

Like every new parents face, these young couples argue whether their new home is the right environment to raise their children. Furthermore, Nina and Miles have small, but continuous, fights over money, free time, and cultural differences between them that eventually threaten their marriage.

Also notable about the debut of the play is the outstanding acting of Sandra Oh, Hollywood's respected Korean-heritage actress.
