Ma-Yi Theater Company in a coproduction with Barrington Stage Company present

THE CHINESE LADY

Written by Former codirector and Member of Ma-Yi  Writers Lab, Lloyd Suh and Directed by Ma-Yi’s Producing Artistic Director, Ralph B. Peña the show will premier July 19 through Aug 11 2018 at St. Germain Stage, in Pittsfield, MA. 

In 1834, Afong Moy was brought from Bejing to America and put on display as the “Chinese Lady.” Over the next 45 years, she performed in a side show that both defined and challenged her own view of herself, as she witnessed stunning transformations in the US.

Per Barrington Stage Company’s founding artistic director, Julianne Boyd. “It’s a season of plays about women in difficult situations.”

“I really don’t consciously set out looking for a theme for the season,” Boyd said during a phone interview, just before officially rolling out the 2018 season at a press luncheon at BSC’s Wolfson Center on North Street. “I mean, usually I pick the plays first and then it seems a theme emerges. This year, I wanted to choose plays that had great roles for women.
