Written by Henry Ong, Madame Mao’s Memories is a picture of life in prison with the woman who enslaved China in order to liberate herself. It is not a documentary account of the life and times of Jiang Qing; neither does it pass judgment on the woman who became famous (or perhaps notorious) throughout the world through her attempts to destroy China’s centuries-old culture, killing many in the process. Through the medium of a one-woman show, it is a portrait of a human being, of facts combined with imagination.
