World Premiere | Australia

Anna May Wong: From immigrant’s daughter to Hollywood’s first Chinese movie star to international style icon, Anna May Wong’s career spanned silent film, talkies, Broadway, cabaret and television before she was thwarted by alcoholism and an industry unwilling to see past her Asian face.

Fiona Choi (The Family Law, The Let Down) captivates as Anna May in an intimate performance as she travels through Anna May’s past and tackles her demons. With its scandalous reminiscences and sparkling musical numbers, Dragon Lady provokes questions about the struggles of cultural identity and the heavy price of ambition.
