Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering on the move inside the building. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here. 

Directed by: Lulu Wang
Starring: Awkwafina,  Tzi Ma,  Diana Lin,  Jim Liu,  Shuzhen Zhou,  Gil Perez-Abraham 

The push and pull between the bonds of blood and the ties of culture are explored with a light touch and a perceptive eye for detail in this delightful, semi-autobiographical family drama from writer and director Lulu Wang

Awkwafina won the Best Actress Golden Globe in her role as Billi, whose family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch – the only person that doesn’t know she only has a few weeks to live.

“Funny, emotionally intricate and deeply moving” ★★★★ – The New York Times
“Both a vehicle for Awkwafina’s formidable talents and an incredibly charming ensemble piece.”★★★★ – Empire
“Moving and witty culture clash tale. Beautifully bittersweet.”★★★★★ – The Guardian
