‘I often feel that in China a woman’s womb doesn’t belong to her’
Two women visit a shamen to ask for guidance, one has the money to buy her way out of the government’s two child policy, the other doesn’t.
Xu Nuo, one of China’s most promising playwrights, explores how governmental population control laws affect different women and how gender supremacy still dominates modern China in this smart, quirky play.
Directed by Natalie Diddams
Performed by Mina Anwar, Elizabeth Chan, Shobna Gulati
