THE CHINESE LADY
by Lloyd Suh
Directed by Michelle Talgarow
2020 Horton Foote Prize Winner
Live Theatre & Virtually On Demand
January 25 – February 26, 2023
Inspired by the true story of the first Chinese woman to step foot in America, Lloyd Suh’s critically acclaimed play is a tale of dark poetic whimsy and a unique portrait of the United States as seen through the eyes of a young Chinese girl. In 1834, 14-year-old Afong Moy sailed into New York Harbor and was immediately put on display for a paying public who were mesmerized by her exotic ways and horrified by her tiny bound feet. As audiences follow Moy’s travels through America as a living exhibit for decades, THE CHINESE LADY tells her story while also casting a powerful lens on the long history of Anti-Asian ugliness and exoticization in America.
Performances will be available as live performances and virtually on demand from January 25 through February 26, 2023, with a Press Opening on Saturday, January 28 at 8:00 pm.
