written and directed by Patrick Lee

About the play:
Diana enjoys a seemingly ordinary life in a retirement home far from the hustle and bustle. However, she has a secret: Diana is Mad Princess Phoenix—the famous vigilante martial arts master, who saved many lives and upheld justice for the voiceless from the bygone era.

Now in her seventies, she accidentally injures a worker at the retirement home after an argument. A government agent is sent to evaluate her psychological profile, and the cantankerous and vulnerable elder is at risk of being forced to a mental health facility. Who can save Diana—the Mad Princess Phoenix— from this fate?

AN OLD LADY WHO SAYS SHE KNOWS KUNG FU is a story about the unwavering importance of fighting injustice, and the superpower that comes from believing in oneself.

Show Dates: May 12-20, 2018
