Made In China

Deliveries pile up in a semi in Wishaw, as Janet panic-buys for her daughter’s sixteenth. She wants to get everything right.

Five thousand miles away, Hui Ting works relentless factory shifts to keep her daughter off the assembly line.

But when Janet discovers a secret note – hidden in a bauble – the two women are bound together beyond typo-laden novelty mugs. Made in China looks into the West’s material reliance on the East and the heart-warming parallels between two women a world apart.

Presented in association with The Traverse Theatre.
