60 minutes

Created, written, directed and performed by Vivian Chong, The Sunglasses Monologue is a memoir of Vivian’s life. Through storytelling, comedy, and original songs, Vivian shares her journey coming out from a coma, and losing her sight which ultimately led to the reinvention of herself as an artist. The show addresses some of the hard truths of life: facing fears head on, forgiving and letting go of ex-lovers, self-acceptance and reinvention. In this firsthand retelling of her story, Vivian shows that there is always the choice to choose again and that it is possible to discover freedom from within.
