It's been all over the country, it's been my life and stops in LA for maybe the last time....

This may be the only time I perform this show in Los Angeles and for FREE ever again! The show is being presented as part of the "National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Arts Journalism Institute in Theater and Musical Theater"-- an NEA conference for arts critics who have been selected for a fellowship with the NEA.

You just show up! And you can bring your friends!

Also, parking under the redcat is $9 a day. So carpool or bus over!!!

Q&A with LA Weekly Theater Critic Steven Leigh Morris. So Fancy!

Incisive writer and performer Kristina Wong mixes sharp humor and psychology in Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, a swear-to-god-not-autobiographical, serio-comic portrayal of the high incidence of anxiety, depression and mental illness among Asian American women. Tangling, spinning, and mixing yarns, she asks: Which came first? The sky-high suicides of Asian American women? The maddening world? And when the heck do we get to climax? Wong's irreverent and provocative work has given her a national cult following for "politically charged art with unapologetic humor." - Bitch Magazine.

Knitters - cuckoo and not - are invited to knit in the audience during the shows.

Wong Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest is a National Performance Network Creation Fund Project commissioned by Asian Arts Initiative and La Pena Cultural Center. Funding for Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, The Ford Foundation, and La Pena's New Works Fund supported by The James Irvine Foundation. Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is also a Project of Creative Capital.
You hear that? Your knitting doesn't have to get in the way of seeing this show -- you are welcome to knit in the audience! And best of all, it's free. Just show up! Spread the word, and bring along your friends. To learn more about Kristina and her show, come worship at the House of Wong here.
