THE WOMAN WARRIOR is a tale of Maxine Hong Kingston’s teen years in 1953 in Stockton, California, with flashbacks to China and New York. Journey into the life of one Chinese family — incorporating myth and reality and the story of the fabled Fa Mu Lan, the Woman Warrior. Actors play animals, warriors, swing dancers, railway workers, and more – in this sprawling, poetic work.
