A finding-your-voice extravaganza! Featuring original songs accompanied by the ukulele, “nice Chinese girl” Cindy (not Connie) Cheung tells the story of being raised Conflict-Avoidant in suburban Southern California and learning to speak up - as an Asian American, an actor and a daughter.
Cindy Cheung (Writer/Performer) is originally from La Palma, CA – it's like 18 minutes west of Disneyland – and has lived in NYC for 14 years, working in theater, TV and film. Last year, she decided to explore writing (again) and was blessed to find herself in Matt Hoverman’s solo show class. A couple of classes, a dozen workshop performances and a text to BD Wong later, she arrives with the show you see before you.
