Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord

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 will be on sale soon.

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.
