[FULL-LENGTH] Grace and Janette, two Asian-American women, are opposites in every way but one... they both like white guys, and have trouble finding the “right” ones. Together, they dream up a very specific dating app to solve their problem. With the help of a team of male, Asian-American programmers, they make the app a reality. But the experience forces them to look within themselves... and blame their love troubles on Hollywood, the media and the culture at large. The play explores themes of technology, love, entertainment, and most of all, friendship.
