Playwright(s): Diana Tso
The Monkey Queen is an original theatre play about female identity and empowerment through cultural and ancestral mythology. Reality crosses the border with an ancient legend from the female perspective of the warrior in a fantastical landscape close to home.
This story is inspired by the mythology of the Monkey King in Wu Cheng’En’s 16th century epic - Journey to the West. The playwright re-imagines an ancient tale through her personal journey as a Chinese Canadian female artist.
