The Sandra Tsing Loh Starter Kit

How do you know Sandra Tsing Loh? As a writer, radio personality, teacher or actor? She's everywhere and now she's coming to SCR with her play, The Madwoman in the Volvo (world premiere on the Julianne Argyros Stage, Jan. 3-24, 2015). Here's the gist of just what Tsing Loh does and is known for...

A New York Times best-selling author of the books Mother on Fire, A Year in Van Nuys and The Madwoman in the Volvo, among others. The Madwoman in the Volvo was selected as one of the New York Times’ 100 Most Notable Books.

Named by Variety one of America’s 50 most influential comedians, Tsing Loh is also an accomplished solo performer. Her solo shows have been performed across the country and include: Aliens in America and Bad Sex With Bud Kemp (both off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre), Sugar Plum Fairy (Geffen Playhouse, Seattle Repertory Theatre), I Worry (The Kennedy Center, Actor’s Theatre of Louisville) and, most recently, The Bitch Is Back (Broad Stage).

She also is a regular contributor for The Atlantic on topics that include parenting and feminism. Her essay, "The Bitch is Back," which appeared in The Atlantic, was selected a Best American Essay for the 2012 edition of the Best American Essays series. Read her articles in The Atlantic here.

Her essay "The Bitch is Back" also inspired her one-woman show of the same name that premiered this summer at The Broad Stage in Los Angeles.

A radio personality, Tsing Loh has been a regular commentator on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” and on PRI’s “This American Life” and “Marketplace.” Her own radio shows, "The Loh Life" and "The Loh Down on Science," can be heard weekly on KPCC.
