The New York Times

Fresh from a sold-out run at NYC’s Public Theater, this show is quickly becoming one of the most widely produced plays in America. In a little-known true episode from the 19th century, a fourteen-year-old girl is brought from China to New York Harbor and put on display as the first Chinese woman in America. Her surreal journey takes her from Andrew Jackson’s Oval Office to P.T. Barnum’s circus tent to the harsh reality of the Chinese Exclusion Act. This haunting portrait allows us to gaze into a hidden past, as the past gazes back at us.
