China Doll (The Imagined Life of an American Actress)
The David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award

Petersen Emerging Playwright Award

Jane Chambers Award
By Elizabeth Wong

Cast: 4m., 2w.-all Asian; or 5m., 3w.-multicultural. Roles are doubled. Dragon Lady. Lotus blossom. The woman who died a thousand deaths. This is the story of a Chinatown girl who dreams about making it big in Hollywood. An award-winning play, this sensual fantasia takes inspiration from the remarkable life of Anny May Wong, America's first and brightest Chinese American movie star. Her loves. Her struggles. Her humiliations. Her triumphs. From humble beginnings to the rigors of training in the studio system of L.B. Mayer and Samuel Goldwyn, to the heights of success in such classic films as Shanghai Express with Marlene Dietrich. This is a loving and unflinching homage to a woman ahead of her time. Bare stage with minimal props. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
