About the production

DIRECTED BY VINEET GUPTA ('18)
PRODUCED WITH ASIAN AMERICAN THEATER PROJECT (AATP)

Unwanted from the moment she’s born, Sunny is determined to escape her life in rural China and forge a new identity in the city with dreams of reaching America. As naïve as she is ambitious, Sunny views her new job in a grueling factory as a stepping stone to untold opportunities. When fate casts her as a company spokeswoman at a sham PR event, Sunny’s bright outlook starts to unravel in a series of harrowing and darkly comic events, as she begins to question a system enriching itself by destroying its own people.
