Circuit Network presents the World Premiere of The Wong Street Journal, a new solo theater work written and performed by performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong. Part plushy TED lecture, part amateur hip-hop extravaganza, and part travelogue, The Wong Street Journal breaks down the complexities of global poverty, privilege and economic theory using uneasy-to-read charts, live hashtag wars, and riveting slideshows from post-conflict Northern Uganda. Wong tells the story of how she as a not-so-white savior, became a hip-hop star in Northern Uganda.

Wong combines self-skewering personal narrative with a hilarious interrogation of America's legacy on the rest of the world. All of this plays against an all felt version of the New York Stock Exchange that Wong sewed with her own hands.
