THE CHINESE LADY
In 1834, Afong Moy, at the age of 14, was brought from Guangzhou to America and put on display as the “Chinese Lady.” Over the next several decades, she performed in a spectacle that both defined and challenged her own view of herself as she witnessed stunning transformation in the US. Inspired by the true story of America’s allegedly first female Chinese immigrant, playwright Lloyd Suh unearths hidden history and questions the way we look at ourselves and others.
Featuring Katie Bradley as Afong Moy and Michael Sung Ho as Atung. Directed by Eric Sharp.
