By Stefani Kuo

Directed by Mei Ann Teo

In partnership with Ma-Yi Theater Company

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. Final Boarding Call 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?

WP Theater is thrilled to team up with the acclaimed Ma-Yi Theater Company—one of the country’s leading incubators of new works shaping local and national conversations about what it means to be Asian American today—to share a story as current as the headlines in today’s news.
