What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/The Unforgettable Anna May Wong

Anna May Wong, the pioneering Chinese American actress who, despite all the odds, became one of Europe and Hollywood's best loved stars in 1930s. 

 

Join Miss Wong in an entertaining evening of songs and iconic film clips, as she tells us of her tragic and wonderful life that saw her rise from laundry girl to become one of the acting elite - although she was the only leading lady that was never allowed to kiss her leading man. This is her story, her search for identity, her hopes and fears and the personal sacrifices she made for the art that she loved.

 

The team behind Edfringe Sell-out 'The Unknown Soldier' and ‘The Empress and Me’ Grist to the Mill Productions and West Yorkshire based British-East-Asian theatre company Red Dragonfly Productions.
