Presented by Q Theatre and Proudly Asian Theatre as part of MATCHBOX 2018
What do Jackie Chan, Steven Yuen, and Raybon Kan have in common?
They’re all on Mei’s list of eligible men to tap, gap, or tie down.
A hot mess of sexual stereotypes, no Asian man is left un-turned in Mei’s quest to root herself back to her roots. When a shock event leaves her questioning everything about love, Chinese-Pākehā Mei dives ferociously back into the dating game. A film star from Singapore, an Indian Taika Waititi and the Asian answer to Channing Tatum lift the sheets on how sex and race collide in little old New Zealand, where Asianess is both fetishised and feared.
An ensemble of the sexiest storytellers from the Asian diaspora play out your wildest dreams and cringiest tropes as Mei uncovers that love is simple but race is not.
