Description

Inspired by the life of Chan’s great-grandmother, Madame Ho tells the fascinating story of a formidable Barbary Coast, San Francisco brothel madam, single mother, Chinese immigrant…and ghost.   It is a tale of of survival and complicity, forming the first installment of a performance trilogy that captures the epic sweep of Chinese in the American West.  Chan mines her real family history to unearth how a single mother struggles to raise a family while running a Chinatown brothel in the segregated world of the late 1800s.
