The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow – Melbourne Fringe Festival

1 Comment

Tegan Jones, our actor and singer in the ACT showcase is starring in a leading role as part of Boutique Theatre’s Australian premiere of The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow. A three week season as part of the 2015 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Tegan has just returned from New York after studying at a six week Summer intensive focusing on the Meisner technique and is excited to return to Melbourne to play Jennifer Marcus.

The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow centres around Jennifer Marcus; a modern-day genius, who designs rockets for the US government from her bedroom in Calabasas California. And, as it happens, an obsessive-compulsive agoraphobic. Stuck in her bedroom, she builds a robot replica of herself to do the one thing she can’t: travel across the world in search of her biological parents.

Come and support the Independent Arts Industry and see this funny and heart-breaking story.

About the Author

Concerned that so few Chinese are performing artists and when they are, there is little opportunity for them to show case their talents . I created the ACT, the Australasian Chinese Theatre Company. The ACT’s inaugural production was From Little Things….devised, designed and written by Aurora Kurth and produced by Moni Storz in 2008. This was followed by Tegan Jones in Blues in the NIght. I wrote and produced Our Man in Beijing, my first inter cultural play and this was performed in 2011.

  1. Great! Tegan! Is this the first time Jenny is performed in Australia? I am wondering why Rolin Jones, th playwright who white anglo american (????) would write a play with the protagonist as a Chinese girl with a very Chinese name – Jenny Chow? Am curious.
