Cape May Stage Virtual Reading Online: The Chinese Lady

The Chinese Lady
By Lloyd Suh
Directed by Penny Bergman
Monday, April 15, at 7 pm
Virtual Reading Online

Free to Attend – All Donations will go to Stop AAPI Hate, a national coalition fighting against racism and racial injustice targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

Inspired by the true story of the first Chinese woman to step foot in America, Lloyd Suh’s critically-acclaimed play, The Chinese Lady, 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, 16-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 shares her impressions of a young country struggling with how to define itself. The Live Stream will start at exactly 7 pm on Monday, April 15th. More information about how to attend will be released soon.
