Join us to for a glimpse into the potential future of new productions at the SJT. A chance to experience these wonderful plays alongside their authors for the very first time, with opportunity for discussion at the end.

This is a biographical play based on Naomi’s experiences of being a transracial adoptee from Hong Kong by white British parents and growing up in a very white world.

The two sides of Naomi ask challenging questions of each other – What does it mean to be British and is Naomi even really Chinese anyway?
