140 LBS: How Beauty Killed My Mother

November 21-23
Pao Arts Center
75 mins | Written & Performed by Susan Lieu | Directed by Sara Porkalob 

Two hours into surgery, Susan’s mother loses oxygen to her brain and the plastic surgeon deliberately does not call 9-1-1 for fourteen minutes. Five days later, while in a coma, she flatlines. The surgeon is charged with medical negligence and her family falls apart; no one talks about what happened.

Nineteen years later on her wedding day, Susan’s mother’s seat sits empty and Susan realizes she can no longer ignore what she’s always wanted: to know who her mother was. Sifting through thousands of deposition pages and reaching out to the killer’s family, Susan uncovers the painful truth of her mother, herself, and the impossible ideal of Vietnamese feminine beauty.

Thursday, November 21, 7:00pm
Friday, November 22, 7:30pm
Saturday, November 23, 7:30pm

Presented by ArtsEmerson, Pao Arts Center, and Asian Pacific Islander Arts Network
