    Following a critically acclaimed debut in New York, Pulitzer Prize finalist Lloyd Suh and Obie Award-winning director Eric Ting brings The Far Country back to its roots in a triumphant West Coast premiere. 

    In the wake of the Chinese Exclusion Act, Moon Gyet has arrived at San Francisco Bay’s Angel Island Immigration Station with an invented biography and a new name, both given to him by a man who made the same arduous crossing several years earlier. But passage to San Francisco — and the dream of a better life for future generations — commands a very high price. Spanning two countries and three generations, Lloyd Suh’s breathtaking account of immigration, identity, and memory has been called “Artful…an act, loving and sorrowful, of reclamation” by The New York Times.

    Thank you to Berkeley Repertory Theater for offering a discount to AIISF (Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation) supporters. Use the code "AI20" to receive a 20% discount (except for March 13 opening night).

    About "The Chinese Lady"

    inspired by the true story of Afong Moy’s life, "The Chinese Lady" is a dark, poetic, yet whimsical portrait of America through the eyes of a young Chinese woman.

    Afong Moy is fourteen years old when she’s brought to the United States from Guangzhou Province in 1834. Allegedly the first Chinese woman to set foot on U.S. soil, she has been put on display for the American public as “The Chinese Lady.” For the next half-century, she performs for curious white people, showing them how she eats, what she wears, and the highlight of the event: how she walks with bound feet. Soon her celebrated sideshow comes to define and challenge her very sense of identity.
