Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
A film version of the one woman Stage Play by Kristina Wong

ABOUT: After touring Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest across the country for five years in over 40 live engagements, Wong’s critically acclaimed one woman show is finally captured in her first ever concert film through the dynamic direction of Michael Closson. An unforgettable tour de force performance. Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is Kristina Wong’s raucous and whip-smart take on the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women. She sets out to single-handedly save them all by the end of her 80 minute show! She fails fantastically, creating hysterical laughter and a sobering coda. It’s one hell of a roller coaster ride! But don’t worry… it’s all fiction.

WHERE: UCLA CAMPUS, Public Affairs Building 2343
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15 12pm-2pm

* Excerpts from the Film
