What if you are in your office minding your business and you receive news that a very dangerous man is in your midst? And then what appears to be a world class dictator walks in? There are things in life you cannot ignore. For a bunch of motley characters, the unexpected event ignited the strangest, funniest manhunt on the Equator. Then he barged straight in, full of anticipation... There was a small man, slightly balding and in his late forties or early fifties, looking into the very wide mirror on the wall. He turned.. .without saying anything to identify himself, but his eyes gave him away. They were so nervous they looked as if they were about to crack like glass... Then the small man put his hand into his shirt pocket. At that moment, a man in his twenties walked into the washroom, whistling a tune casually. The small man froze and took his hand out of his pocket - it was empty... Then he turned to the mirror and pretended that there was something in his eye.

Nora Fawn's daughter, Hope, disappeared four years ago. Nora has never known why. Refusing to answer her mother's calls, emails or texts, Hope maintained contact only with her big sister, Joy. Having once considered her mothering to be the greatest achievement of her life, Nora's spent these Hope-less years searching, aching, mother-guilting, working for a famous yet talentless artist and avoiding her own emotionally repressed mother, Daphne. But ... last night Hope rang out of the blue to say, 'I'm coming home, I'm getting married, the wedding is in three weeks and it's your job to organise it.' Desperate to prove her worth as a mother and regain her daughter's love, Nora commits to the task - assisted by her own increasingly dementia'd mother and her two best friends, Soula (an amateur bikini-line waxer) and Thilma (whom they found in a cab in the 1980s). My Daughter's Wedding is both hilarious and profound as it explores the confounding complexity, wild terrain, mountains, valleys and quicksand found in three generations of mother-daughter love.
