ABOUT THE SHOW
In 1834, 14-year-old Afong Moy was the first Chinese woman to come to America. She spent her life traveling across the country as a living exhibition for a paying public, who were mesmerized by her exotic ways and unnerved by her bound feet. Inspired by a true story, this critically acclaimed play unearths hidden history as a displaced woman and a young nation struggle with how to define themselves.

ABOUT THE SHOW
Her husband is the most famous man in literary history. She has been cloaked in silence and invisibility. Now Anne Hathaway tells her side of the story, full of love and loss, secrets and sacrifices. Inspired by what little we know about Anne, this witty and imaginative play creates a surprisingly modern portrait of a proudly imperfect wife and mother: a liberated woman living on her own defiant terms.
