CHINGLISH is the hilarious story of an American businessman desperate to launch a new enterprise in China. There are only three things standing in his way: He can’t speak the language. He can’t learn the customs. And he’s falling in love with the one woman he absolutely can’t have. From the producers of August: Osage County comes CHINGLISH, a new comedy about the misadventures of miscommunication, written by Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly) and directed by Leigh Silverman (From Up Here, Well).
Direct from its sold-out run at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre, this funny and sexy new play, where most everything gets lost in translation, now finds its way to the Longacre Theatre.
