Eugenie Chan, Resident Playwright, New Dramatists; Artistic Associate, Cutting Ball Theater; Playwright, “Madame Ho”
Come hear the very first reading of a new play and meet playwright Chan, who will hold a conversation after the reading. “Madame Ho” tells the story of a formidable woman in the Barbary Coast, a real-life 19th-century brothel madam, Chinese immigrant, wife and mother. The play explores the epic history of the Chinese-American West through a shape-shifting tale of one woman’s struggle to forge a life for herself and her daughter.
