FORTUNATE DAUGHTER
Some folks are born ... made to raise the rainbow flag

Writer / Performer: Thao P. Nguyen
Director: W. Kamau Bell
Consulting Director: Martha Rynberg
Developed in the Solo Performance Workshop
Producer: Meanie Productions

This latest solo show from writer-performer Thao P. Nguyen tells the story of a woman torn between two families. One family – her loving Vietnamese parents and relatives – keeps pushing her to marry (a man). The other family – her friends in the queer community – continually urges her to come out to her "other" family. Thao goes to great lengths to keep both parties satisfied – and completely separate. But the stress and struggle of this emotional balancing act is taking its toll, as “Fortunate Daughter” traces Thao's journey from a trip to Vietnam to meet her grandmother to an anti-Prop 8 rally to a gay pride march to Thanksgiving dinner.
