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 plays 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.
"A triumph in any language. CHINGLISH is sexy, fun and hilarious." - New York Magazine "Engaging and 100% recognizable." - Atlantic
