Langyuan Vintage (朗园 Vintage) , 6 Tonghuihe Beilu Fri 26 Apr

This event has now passed.

The Leftover Monologues is a play that debuted to resounding success in Beijing back in the summer of 2014. Structured similarly to the Vagina Monologues, the play unites eight brazen Chinese voices in a stirring evening of entertainment and insight into the complexities of love, sex, marriage and relationships in China – with an emphasis on the societal pressures/expectations that accompany all of the above.

Candidly, viscerally, and ardently, their performers will convey their battles with duty and desire, passion and practicality, and of course, give you an earful of the triumphs, travails and tribulations of being/fearing/or totally loving being a leftover. The play is bilingual, so monologues will be in English or Chinese, though they'll provide a general overview of each one so non-bilingual participants can follow without a problem.

The event will take place at IdeaPod in Langyuan Vintage. Guests include Nicole Sun, Q Shao, Roseann Lake (author of Leftover in China: The Women Shaping the World’s Next Superpower).
