Presented by Mirror Me Productions

From playwright Chase Lo comes a theatrical thriller about a family of trans/nonbinary Asian and migrant sex workers on a vigilante search for their missing sister, Ruby. In their quest, they seek the aid of ancestral ghosts and memories to solve the puzzle of her disappearance. This is a story about chosen family and the choices we make to pursue our dreams; no matter the cost.

This will be the first public presentation of this work-in-development, so we are seeking audience feedback. Following the staged reading will be a talkback facilitated by Leon Tsai.

Half of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Butterfly: Asian and Migrant Sex Workers Support Network.
