“Citizen Wong” plans to hold 3 READINGS in Ogden, Orem, and Salt lake City on May 7, 8, 9, 2019.

“Citizen Wong” is a play inspired by Wong Chin Foo (王清福, 1847–1898), the late 19th-century celebrity speaker-writer known as the first Chinese American. His affair with a rich suffragette whose father runs for president captures the essence of an era when racists supported an “anti-Chinese wall” and passed the Chinese Exclusion Act that Wong fought tirelessly against.
