"The Chinese Lady" is taking the stage at Theater Wit in Lakeview, Chicago.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- There's a play at the Theater Wit that tells the story of the first Chinese woman on U.S. soil. She was put on display so Americans could see a "real Chinese lady."

The play is called "The Chinese Lady."

Helen Young is the show's director. She's been working to see more Asian stories told on stage in Chicago.

TimeLine Theatre Company is also offering on demand viewings of the show.
