Wei is a smart girl.
Men prefer to marry women who aren't smarter than themselves.
Class B men choose class C women.
Class A choose class B.
Wei is a Class A woman.
What's she going to get?
Wei has turned 27 and suddenly her grandmother is worried.
27 brings with it the label of "shengnu", or "leftover woman", so a husband needs to be found before she's missed her chance.
Back in China, unbeknownst to Wei, her grandmother pushes her mother into joining the hundreds of parents at the Marriage Market of Guangzhou.
Here there's only one successful transaction: a first date for your child.
With a dual setting of Coventry and Guangzhou, this compelling new play by Amy Ng (Acceptance, Shangri-La) explores tradition, trauma and triumph in the art of finding love.
