The Chinese Lady
By Lloyd Suh
Directed by May Adrales
A new play by a leading voice in American drama. In 1834, Afong Moy was brought from Beijing to America and put on display as the “Chinese Lady.”Over the next several decades, she performed in a side show 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 first female Chinese immigrant, playwright Lloyd Suh unearths hidden history and questions the way we look at ourselves and others.
