The Chinese Lady @ Long Wharf Theatre

Inspired by the true story of America’s first female Chinese “immigrant”

Meet Afong Moy, a 14-year-old girl who traveled the United States, first with the Carne Brothers and then with P.T. Barnum. Her “performance?” Educate others about life in her native China. To Afong, she is an ambassador; to her owners, a sideshow. As these dual truths become irreconcilable, Afong must reckon with herself and the history of her new home with startling discoveries in Lloyd Suh’s deeply poetic and subversively comedic tale.
