Merrigong Theatre Company presents a Belvoir production
Miss Peony 牡丹小姐 – A 21st Century Australian comedy caught between two generations and two cultures.
By Michelle Law
Michelle Law’s fierce and funny debut play, Single Asian Female, was a nationwide smash hit. Now she focuses her razor-sharp eye on the world of beauty pageants in this coming-of-age comedy about what happens when the ghosts of generations past come back to haunt you.
Lily’s grandmother was a beauty queen in Hong Kong. She doesn’t care that times have changed and that Lily lives in a new country and a new century. She sees that Lily’s caught between worlds and wants her to enter the Chinese community beauty pageant, the highly competitive Miss Peony.
She won’t take no for an answer. And to makes matters worse, she’s a ghost.
Featuring a dynamic cast, Miss Peony is a lavish and loopy exploration of the journey to self-acceptance. This multi-lingual production will feature surtitle translation in English, Cantonese & Simplified Chinese, so that everyone can enjoy the show!
A per transaction fee of $6.95 applies for phone and online bookings. Under 30s tickets only available in person at the Box Office.
