The Finger Players presents

FIRST FAMILY
(a kungfu parody in English, Mandarin and Cantonese with subtitles)

First there was the Yang Generals
Now there is the First Family!

7 maidens try to protect the emperor from
his assassins. But they soon find themselves in
peril when the tables are turned on them

First Family parodies the patriotic tale of the
female generals and campy 70s’ Hong Kong kungfu cinema

Expect irreverently funny kungfu sequences and
amazing use of shadow puppetry incorporated into the action.
Funny and yet bittersweet, this pugilistic drama is the
theatrical event you cannot miss in 2006!
