About Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord

Written and Performed by Kristina Wong
Directed by Chay Yew

On Day 3 of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kristina 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 healthcare system while in quarantine. It was a feminist care utopia forming in the midst of crisis. Or was it a mutual aid doomsday cult? With hilarity and boundless generosity, she invites the audience in on her work building community in isolation, while reflecting on what we’d been through and imagining what we wanted to become.

“A spiky comic tonic…”
— The New York Times

“In the emerging genre of pandemic theater, Kristina Wong, Sweatshop Overlord is haute couture.”
— Timeout

“Wong [is] a compelling, irrepressible onstage presence”
— The Wrap
