The complaints about college life and the misconceptions about adulting. The term "Social Death/社死 (shè sǐ)" is often used on Chinese social media to describe the extreme awkwardness when someone behaves in an embarrassing manner. "SSDA" is a one-act comedy that explores those awkward moments in college life and the transition to adulthood. It includes things you did wrong during college: the first coffee chat with alumni, attending language classes without preparation, loudly cheering for a sports team until realizing you got the school wrong, struggling to manage your facial expression upon getting know someone else's GPA, and leaving college unprepared.

关于大学生活的吐槽和成人生活的迷思。“社死” 经常被用在中国社交媒体上来描述出丑时的极度尴尬。SSDA是一个单幕喜剧,探讨了大学生活里的那些尴尬瞬间和成年过渡期。它包括了那些你在大学期间没做对的事情:第一个和校友的coffee chat,没有预习就去上的语言课,看球赛时大声欢呼直到发现认错自己学校的球队,得知别人的GPA后没有做好表情管理,没有准备好就要离开大学。
