Ma-Yi Theater Company and WP Theater would like to announce that our scheduled run of Final Boarding Call will be postponed to a later date.
The Final Boarding Call team made many exciting creative discoveries throughout the rehearsal process in virtual space, and both institutions want to support them as they work in this new medium. We’re making the decision to postpone in order to give our artists the time required to bring our audiences the most innovative theatermaking possible. Current ticket holders and donors will have the option to hold onto their reservations for the new broadcast dates or receive a full refund of their donation. New dates for Final Boarding Call will be announced in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for your support and understanding–we can’t wait to share Final Boarding Call with you!
Written by rising star Stefani Kuo and directed by Mei Ann Teo (SKiNFoLK: An American Show), FINAL BOARDING CALL tells the stories of the current Hong Kong protests. The play revolves around the interconnected stories of seven characters whose backgrounds and perspectives run the spectrum – a protesting brother and flight attendant sister struggling to keep her job; a Mainland Chinese mother and her estranged Hong Kong daughter; a non-Cantonese speaking reporter and her Indian partner; and an American expat CEO and Hong Kong lover living in the shadows. The play begins and ends with a flight, an entrance into the Hong Kong protests and how the politics we see on the news every day affects the citizens of Hong Kong in their day-to-day lives. It gives the audience a window into China’s grip on global capitalism. How far will they go to fight for family, freedom, and the right to be heard?
Ma-Yi Theater Company is proud to partner with WP Theater, the nation’s oldest and largest theater company dedicated to developing, producing, and promoting the work of women+ at every stage of their careers.
