This smart and sensitive one-woman show, performed by Michelle Yim, tells the extraordinary true story of the Princess Der Ling.
As the daughter of a Chinese diplomat and a Eurasian mother, Lizzie Yu was raised in France to be every bit the Victorian lady.
But when her father was recalled home, she found herself living in the Forbidden City and entangled in the politics of the Chinese court as lady-in-waiting, Princess Der Ling, to the infamous Empress Cixi.
Just who is Lizzie Yu? Does she really know? This is the story of one woman's search for identity in an ever-changing world.
