Named one of Time Magazine’s 10 best plays of 2011, Chinglish follows an American businessman in a bustling Chinese province looking to cash-in on the area’s growth potential. He engages an English consultant to navigate the linguistic and cultural clash his venture unwittingly sparks and gets more than he negotiated for. A hilarious comedy of mistranslation and manners by Tony and Obie Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang.
