[Community Partner Event] Artists at Play presents THE CHINESE LADY

September 7 - September 29, 2019 | Greenway Court Theatre

Inspired by the true story of America’s first female Chinese immigrant, The Chinese Lady by Lloyd Suh, directed by Rebecca Wear is a dark, poetic, yet whimsical portrait of America through the eyes of a young Chinese woman. Afong Moy is 14 years old when she is brought to the United States from Canton in 1834. Allegedly the first Chinese woman to set food on American soil, she has been purchased and put on display as "The Chinese Lady," where she performs for curious museum-goers. As the decades wear on, her celebrated sideshow comes to define and challenge her identity. The Chinese Lady blurs the line between the observed and the observer, providing new eyes on the history of American entitlement and immigration.
