About Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord

Kristina Wong's new play, Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord, will open at New York Theatre Workshop as part of the 2021/2022 season. Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord tickets are available on New York Theatre Guide now.

Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord is a play about Wong's real-life experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. Three days in, Wong began sewing masks out of old bedsheets and bra straps on her Hello Kitty sewing machine. Before long, she was leading the Auntie Sewing Squad, a work-from-home sweatshop of hundreds of volunteers — including children and her own mother — to fix the U.S. public health care system while in quarantine. It was a feminist care utopia forming in the midst of crisis. Or was it a mutual aid doomsday cult?

As the demand for masks abates and we begin to return safely to space, Wong is beginning to put her life together post-pandemic and cult leadership. With hilarity and boundless generosity, she invites the audience in on her work building community in isolation, while reflecting on what we've been through and imagining what we want to become. 

Tickets to Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord are available now. Book your Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord tickets on New York Theatre Guide today.

Relevant, Great set, Fluffy, Funny, Ambitious

See it if 90min solo show about Asian American women led mask sewing group; American history during pandemic; uneven writing, somehow works due to ..

Don’t see it if Chay Yew’s smart directing. “BLM” chapter feels forced. Reference to Asian American history and identity is heartfelt.

See it if hilarious, moving, lots of heart, takes you through the traumatic events in U.S. since the start of the pandemic but surprisingly healing

Don’t see it if if you are not ready to see a show which talks about the pandemic when we are still in it, but, you might be surprised how much we need it

See it if you like one-woman shows. This was a really touching glimpse at a moment of the pandemic that's now passed but we should never forget.

Don’t see it if you'd prefer not to see a true story on stage or like plays that have more than one person in them.
