The 1 to 25 October 2020 season of Miss Peony has been postponed. All ticket holders will be contacted by QPAC in the first instance.

We are currently working with the producers to ascertain rescheduled dates for this production.

A new coming-of-age comedy about the journey to self-acceptance from the writer of the nationwide smash hit Single Asian Female – Michelle Law.

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 sees that Lily’s caught between worlds and wants her to enter the Chinese community beauty pageant, the highly competitive Miss Peony. She won’t take no for an answer.

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

“I entered a beauty pageant once as a teenager and won Best Personality. In a beauty pageant! This is going to be glitzy and glamorous and slightly unhinged.” Michelle Law

A Belvoir Production in collaboration with Queensland Performing Arts Centre and Arts Centre Melbourne.
