Chinglish

"The first rule of doing business in China is also the last. Always bring your own translator."

Daniel, an American, wants to open up China for his business. 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 can’t have.

Tony award-winning and Pulitzer Prize finalist David Henry Hwang returns to Park Theatre following the sell-out success of Yellow Face (Park Theatre 2013, National Theatre 2014), with the European premiere of his Broadway hit comedy.

Hwang’s hilarious comedy about the misadventures of miscommunication explores the modern difficulty of doing business between East and West.

“A triumph in any language” New York Magazine

"Satisfyingly chewy and complex" "Highly amusing" Evening Standard ****

"A terrific comedy" "A gift that keeps on giving" "Hwang is a master craftsman"The Times ****

  • Laughs Galore and Flawless Performances

    2 April 2017

    There are plenty of laughs to be had from the notoriously bad English translations, but at a certain point (without giving away the plot) the dialect of the title is revealed as not just fractured language but the essence of poetry. Stunning performances, especially from Lobo Chan as the cultural minister and Candy Ma as his deputy.
