Miss Peony 牡丹小姐

A Belvoir St Theatre Production | Our Season 2023

Miss Peony 牡丹小姐

A brand new comedy from the writer of the smash hit Single Asian Female.

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.


冬冬的婆婆曾经是香港小姐冠军 。尽管时代变迁,现今冬冬生活在一个新的国家和世纪,她都并不在乎。她看到孙女被夹在两个世界中、左右为难。所以婆婆逼迫冬冬参选竞争激烈的牡丹小姐,无论冬冬如何尝试挣扎脱身,她的婆婆都不会接受「不」。更糟的是,婆婆是一只鬼。豪华瞩目又滑稽怪诞,创新大胆喜剧牡丹小姐讲述了我们基本的人际关系需求—对家庭、过去、未来、和彼此之间。这将会是我们史无前例,第一次同时使用三种语言演出:在现场,角色会从英语切换至广东话和普通话,全场演出均提供三种语言字幕。
