Circuit Network and Mad Cat Theatre are pleased to present Kristina Wong, a nationally-presented solo performer, writer, actor, educator, and self-proclaimed "culture jammer", in GOING GREEN THE WONG WAY. Noted for her quirky, offbeat, sometimes subversive and always brutally funny work, Wong tackles her fourth full-length solo show with the help of actor/director Paul Tei, artistic director of Miami's acclaimed Mad Cat Theatre.
In her quest to pursue sustainable living, Kristina Wong purchased a 1981 pink Mercedes that ran on vegetable oil, and endured a nightmare of never-ending car repairs and near death pursuits for the used cooking oil to fuel it. When the car finally burst into flames on an L.A. freeway, Wong lost the largest line item in her monthly budget, and gained the inspiration for this premiere production. GOING GREEN THE WONG WAY brings our contemporary urban environment to life, revealing just how tricky it is to "do the right thing." Based on Wong's true-life adventures, but elevated to surrealist heights, the production takes us from Kristina's confrontational 6th grade science project, to her wandering years as a missionary of recycling, to her true calling as Los Angeles' patron martyr of carbon-free living.
