Claire and Alex are getting married. Two Chinese American families with two completely different sets of values and traditions are finally gathering together for the wedding banquet. As the wedding begins, conflicts start to emerge. Double Happiness is a comedic immersive theatrical experience that unpacks the complexity and explores the nuances within the Chinese American/Immigrant identity, while allowing the audience to enjoy what is called a traditional Chinese wedding.
