How The Ghost Of You Clings, The Anna May Wong Story
by Playwrights’ Center Core Writer John Olive
A “bioplay” about the great Chinese-American actor Anna May Wong (Huang Liu Tsong, 1905-1961). The beauteous Anna lived large, appearing in silents, talkies, in the earliest days of television, in vaudeville shows, on Broadway, on the West End. Anna remains, to this day, the most prolific Asian actor, ever.

FROM JOHN: “As I worked on How The Ghost Of You Clings I discovered, to my chagrin, that many—most—people have never heard of Ms. Wong. I had, being a devotee of old movies, but this lack of familiarity with a great American is something I hope to rectify with this play.”
Reservations will open approximately a month before the event.
