CHINGLISH at the Aurora Fox!

CHINGLISHRegional Premiere Badge

March 24-April 9 - GET TICKETS!

By David Henry Hwang

Miscommunication leads to crossed signals and culture clashes in this whip-smart comedy from David Henry Hwang, the Tony and Obie Award-winning writer of M. Butterfly. Hwang’s Chinglish is the snafu-filled story of a naïve American businessman who’s trying to conduct an important deal in China. 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 Xu, a beautiful, seemingly supportive government official who talks the talk … though it’s unclear what she’s actually saying. The Aurora Fox presents this regional premiere of Hwang’s “deliriously funny” (Los Angeles Times) comedy about mistranslations and stranger-in-a-strange-land manners mishaps.
