AI YAH! CHOP SUEY
BY DALE LEE KWONG
FRIDAY, MAY 28 AT 7:30PM MDT
Jade Wong accepts a ticket for a free, all-inclusive cruise. She doesn’t realize it’s a lesbian cruise, or that her cabin mate is a lesbian she has a crush on. Find out what else Jade discovers on board, and about herself when she is forced to face the facts of her sexual orientation. Jade’s journey continues when she is forced out of the closet to her traditional Chinese-Canadian parents during Chinese New Year. What is thicker, love or soy sauce? Don’t miss this coming out comedy with a cultural twist, Ai Yah! Chop Suey.
Ai Yah! Chop Suey is based on the podcast Ai Yah! Face the Facts produced by the Alberta Queer Calendar Project 2020, and Ai Yah! Sweet and Sour Secrets developed and produced by Lunchbox Theatre in 2018.
