Lily’s grandmother was a beauty queen back in Hong Kong. She doesn’t care that times have changed, that Lily lives in a new country and a new century. She sees a granddaughter caught between worlds. So Poh Poh pushes Lily into entering the highly competitive Miss Peony, and no matter how hard Lily tries to wriggle out of it, her grandma won’t take no for an answer. And to make matters worse, she’s a ghost.
Glitzy and madcap, Miss Peony is a bold new comedy about our good old need for connection – to family, the past, the future, each other.
This show is offered in three languages: these characters switch between English, Cantonese and Mandarin, so the show is surtitled in all three.
Presented in association with AsiaTOPA, Belvoir St Theatre and Queensland Performing Arts.
