Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

  • Length: 85 min
  • Directed by Michael Closson
  • Writer: Kristina Wong
  • Cast: Kristina Wong

Hilarious Performance Artist Kristina Wong vows that at the end of her 80 minute, one-woman show, she will save all Asian American women from the inexplicably high rate of suicide and depression that affects them. Irreverent, clever, and insanely meta-theatrical, Wong’s attempts at playing savior unravel faster than the nest of yarn she’s perched upon, as she descends quickly into the divide between Asian porn stars and the impossibly perfect Asian genius. Along the way she becomes a hysterical living commentary on the cultural and societal pressures that may be sources of depression in the first place. Wong’s Tour De Force performance has played over seven years in 50 venues across the US.
