What You'll Get
From East West Players' favorite playwright, Chinglish is the snafu-prone story of a naïve Midwestern-American businessman who's trying to conduct an important deal in a bustling Chinese province. He quickly learns just how much he doesn't comprehend: His translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he's captivated by Xi, a beautiful, seemingly supportive government official whom he has trouble understanding. Mistranslations, manners mishaps and stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions abound in Chinglish, a laugh-out-loud comedy by David Henry Hwang, the Tony and Obie Award-winning writer of M. Butterfly. See the culture clash come to a hilarious head at David Henry Hwang Theater.
