Where are you from? The age-old question that mixed-raced people just love to answer. Starting a family is always hard, it has added challenges when you’re figuring out "the right way" to parent your mixed-raced child. Now the microaggressions and racism she experienced in the past are very much her problem, as she tries to protect her child from the way that she has been seen. Constrictor discusses family and international communities. From Malacca and Brazil to Singapore, then Fremantle, New York, and now Edinburgh, the family that we choose to support us will see us.

An extremely well written and very well performed show discussing what it means to have race as a descriptor in both the outside social world and also the interior world of relationships. A deeply emotional and personal piece, performed with a comedic bite that helps tie up the more emotional beats. This is a show that should be watched for the sake of hearing a very powerful, well performed voice on both cultural and personal histories, and a show that definitely deserves a bigger audience.

A really engaging one-person show that left me with a lot to think about. Very well written and performed, and one for anyone looking for some thoughtful, honest discussion of race and the modern world.
