Belvoir St Theatre is proud to announce the long-awaited world premiere of Michelle Law’s Miss Peony, which hits the stage for the very first time before a national tour this July. An inter-generational comedy for 21st century Australia, Miss Peony will play at the Upstairs Theatre at Belvoir from 1st July to 29th July 2023 before heading to Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong and Geelong.

Presenting a tri-lingual show for the first ever time on a Sydney mainstage, Miss Peony is a glitzy, glamorous and slightly-unhinged dive into the world of beauty pageants, featuring projected captions in English, Cantonese and Simplified Chinese simultaneously throughout the show.

Lily’s grandmother was a beauty queen back in Hong Kong. She doesn’t care that times have changed and that Lily lives in a new country and a new century. She realises that Lily’s caught between worlds, and prods her to enter the Chinese community beauty pageant, the highly competitive Miss Peony. She won’t take no for an answer.

And to make matters worse, she’s a ghost.
