CHINGLISH is a hilarious comedy about the challenges of doing business in a country whose language—and underlying cultural assumptions—can be worlds apart from those of the West. The play tells the adventures of Daniel, an American business-everyman from the Midwest, who hopes to establish his family's sign-making business in China, only to learn what is lost and found in translation.
"Fresh, energetic and unlike anything else. CHINGLISH is a thoughtful, funny and poignant piece in which, miraculously, nothing gets lost in translation." —Associated Press. "A witty study in modern-day miscommunication, that erupts into explosive laughter." —New Jersey Newsroom. "One of the year's ten best!" —Time Magazine. "A triumph in any language. CHINGLISH is sexy, fun and hilarious." —NY Magazine. "In Hwang's hilarious CHINGLISH, the Chinese lion roars, American business trembles. Surely Hwang's best work since M. Butterfly. One of the best plays of 2011." —Chicago Tribune.
