Lugar: Latino Theater Co.

Directed by Reena Dutt

In this new play, CioCio from Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly completes her suicide, only to wake up realizing she is trapped in a never-ending loop of her story. Then Miss Saigon’s Kim joins the void, thrusting another tragic heroine into the deadly cycle, until a mysterious office woman throws their worlds out of balance. This Is Not a True Story unravels the history of Orientalist art and theatre, and looks at what happens when the tragic Asian heroine takes control of her own story.

This production includes theatrical haze; a non-firing prop pistol and gunshot sound effects; suicide; discussions of sex work, sexual assault, and war violence; strong language; the myth of the American Dream; and women speaking for themselves and questioning the status quo. No babies or animals were harmed in the making of this production.

90 minutes with no intermission

This Is Not a True Story is recommended for ages 13 and up.
