    Lucy Liu is an Asian American icon and star of the new 'Shazam!' 

    Eden is a star employee of a local cinema, selling the tickets.

    She's always told she looks like Lucy Liu: her idol and her nemesis. 

    Can she ever reach Lucy's Hollywood heights? 

    With the help of Camden People's Time Machine, and with you – the audience – in control, Eden will go on a funny, fast-paced, and sometimes heartbreaking adventure through alternative pasts, presents, and futures, as she attempts to rewrite and reclaim her story as a superstar in her own right.

    But, beware: 

    Life is not a game.

    Every choice has a consequence. 

    No two shows will be the same. 

    Her life is in your hands...

    Choosing Our Next Adventure: a futurist community conversation (Post-show event on 20 Jun)

    Join the I'm Sorry I'm Not Lucy Liu team and friend of the production Lisa Maeda to talk about the show and where it's going next. We'll discuss the choices we've made so far and how the show came to be before opening up the floor to questions and feedback from the most important parts of our production: all of you! Have your say about what you thought was clear and what wasn't and help us go from Charlie's Angels to Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

    Directed by Francesca Hsieh.
