Single Asian Female

Date: 3 Feb 2018

Belvoir presents the hotly anticipated Sydney premiere of Michelle Law’s play set in The Golden Phoenix, a restaurant on the Sunshine Coast.

The last customers have left for the night, and Pearl can unwind. She’s the quintessential matriarch – balancing family, business, and her love of karaoke.

Enter her daughters: Zoe, in the throes of online dating, making big life decisions. And Mei, a teenager, grappling with her identity in modern Australia.

Both see the world differently to their mother, who tonight will reveal a secret that threatens to tear their family apart.
