Why See Chinglish?
A timely comedy about Chinese/American relations!
A groundbreaking transfer from Broadway, this timely and politically relevant comedy-drama by Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang (the writer of M.Butterfly) explores the cultural barriers between America and China, with a completely bilingual cast that has been assembled after a gruelling four-month casting process. The second production of Hwang 's to be staged at the Park Theatre following the successful production of Yellow Face in 2013, Chinglish will be directed by Andrew Keates. It will be performed in both English and Mandarin
Chinglish follows the humorous story of Daniel, a Midwestern American businessman who is desperately looking to score a lucrative contact for his family's sign-making firm. Deciding on the Chinese market, he travels to the provincial capital of Guiyang, only to learn how much he doesn't understand: his translators are unreliable, his Australian-born consultant, Peter, may be a fraud and he is captivated by Xu Yan, the beautiful, seemingly supportive government official who talks the talk - but he has no idea what she is saying!
