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 and that Lily lives in a new country and a new century. She sees that Lily’s caught between worlds, and wants her to enter the Chinese community beauty pageant, the highly competitive Miss Peony. She won’t take no for an answer.
And to makes matters worse, she’s a ghost.
I entered a beauty pageant once as a teenager and won Best Personality. In a beauty pageant! This is going to be glitzy and glamorous and slightly unhinged. – Michelle Law
Miss Peony has been developed in partnership with Belvoir and Playwriting Australia.
Supported by the Nelson Meers Foundation.
