For our 46th meetup event, Works by Women San Francisco attended the world premiere production of Eugenie Chan’s Madame Ho. Inspired by the life of Chan’s great grandmother, a Barbary Coast madam and single mother, the play is on the Kilroy’s 2015 List and is a recipient of the Theatre Bay Area Rella Lossy Award. This show was produced by the playwright’s production company, Eugenie Chan Theater Project.
Women theater artists working on this project include Jessica Heidt (director), Sydney Schwindt (fight director), Bonnie Akimoto*, Rinabeth Apostol*, Lily Tung Crystal*, Lisa Hori-Garcia*, Christine Jamlig, and Mimu Tsujimura (actors), and Keiko Shimosato Carreiro* (actor/costume designer).
If you saw the show with WWSF or on your own, please leave a comment and let the artists know what you thought!
