Orange County, represent! Our friend Michelle Krusiec will be performing her hit one-woman family comedy Made in Taiwan on September 14, 21 and 28, presented as part of Shakespeare Orange County's current season. The show is part of a larger effort to reach out to a younger, multi-generational, Asian American theatre-going audience in Orange County. Because theatre is just for old white folks.
Here are some more details about the show:
Made In Taiwan
When mom starts biting, it's a telltale sign it's time to move out.
Made in Taiwan is a family comedy that pits a young daughter against her mother, a woman who resorts to any action (including pimping her daughter out for fresh fish) in the name of education.
The mother, pragmatic, foul-mouthed and world-weary, is determined to uncover the identity of her husband's mistress, and the daughter makes the mistake of announcing that Dad's mistress doesn't exist.
Tragedy ensues in this David and Goliath story set in suburbia.
Written and performed by Michelle Krusiec
Directed by Andy Belser
3 SHOWS ONLY! Sundays, Sept. 14, 21, 28 at 7:30pm
