A Girl Named Sue
by Color Arc Productions
Feb. 24 - Mar. 12, 2017
A Girl Named Sueis an original play by Vietnamese-American playwright Christine Hoang with original songs written & performed by Korean-American singer/songwriter Betty Soo. Hoang chose four songs from Soo's body of work to create the story arc for this new work.
The lead is a Vietnamese-American woman named Sue who is attending graduate school in English literature with a focus on Asian-American representation in television and film.
Through Sue's relationships with the characters in the play, we explore issues between Asian and Black communities in America, as well as friendships between women of color. We also engage in multidisciplinary storytelling through theatre, music, and poetry.
