Wei has turned 27 and her grandmother is worried. 27 brings the label of “shengnu,” or “leftover woman,” so a husband must be found before it’s too late.

Unbeknownst to Wei, her grandmother and her mother affix Wei’s dating profile onto an umbrella and join the hundreds of parents at the Marriage Market of Guangzhou. Here there’s only one successful transaction: a first date for your child.

When Wei learns of her family’s interventions, she finds herself asking whether being single is just too much hassle.

Set in Coventry and Guangzhou, this compelling new play by Amy Ng (Acceptance, Shangri-La) explores tradition, trauma and triumph in the art of finding love.
