Made in China
The Obie and Drama Desk Award-Winning Wakka Wakka brings their new darkly comedic puppet musical to life!
An isolated woman finds solace in shopping. After one of her big-box sprees, she finds a cry-for-help note, written by a woman in a Chinese labor camp, stuffed in a box of Halloween lights. Inspired into activism, she embarks on an odyssey of global proportions. Inspired by true events, Made In China is a fantastical exploration of human rights, consumerism, and morality as told through the unlikely love story between a middle-aged American woman and her Chinese ex-pat neighbor. Baby pandas, dancing appliances and romping middle-aged lovers populate Wakka Wakka’s fantastical universe. Made In China features 30 puppets, music inspired by both American and Chinese traditions, and animated video to spin an entertaining tale with powerful take-aways and plenty of laughs.
