“Four Stars!” (out of four)
A “shrewd, timely and razor-sharp comedy”
— Chicago Tribune
From the award-winning author of M. Butterfly, Chinglish is an uproarious new comedy about the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language—and ways of communicating—are worlds apart from our own.
A Midwestern American businessman who’s desperately looking to score a lucrative contact for his family’s sign-making firm travels to China only to learn how much he doesn’t understand: his translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xu, the beautiful, seemingly supportive government official who talks the talk—but what is she saying, anyway? From the acclaimed author of M. Butterfly. See it now before it heads to New York!
