Jing is getting married to her boyfriend Tian. After all these years of long-distance relationship in the U.S., the young couple finally decide to go back to China for their own home. However, as the fragmented flashbacks of old acquaintances start haunting her, she can barely tell between the reality and her illusion of hidden fears and desires. Is she in a dream? In the streams of blurred consciousness, she begins to question each of her choice in life and who she really is. How do people fall in and out of love? What is the safety net that every human being is looking for? This play raises questions about all these things that might defines the sense of belonging — love, marriage, family, location, cultural identification, and more.
Eventually, will you land in one piece?
Safety Net, directed by Peizhi Zeng is at Etcetera Theatre April 22- April 27 at 6:30PM and April 27 3:00PM
