Four Chinese-American mothers, four American-born daughters, and the rich complexities of family ties and history as the eight women reach across a seemingly unbridgeable divide.
Located in the San Gabriel Valley, the Sierra Madre Playhouse, draws from the rich cultural traditions of local residents. Over some 40 theatrical seasons, experience tells us that audience members' own stories enrich and expand the work onstage. This is a dialog between actor and audience member that makes theater such an enduring artistic tradition. We are anxious to offer The Joy Luck Club to the Chinese and Chinese-American residents of our community in particular, yet equally welcome every audience member representing other cultural roots to join in its universal wisdom.
