Yale Night at the Theater - CHINGLISH By David Henry Hwang DRAMA ‘83

By David Henry Hwang DRAMA ‘83

Saturday, February 2, 2013
655 Town Center Drive
Costa Mesa CA
8:00 PM

Daniel's sign-making company is in trouble, but he has a great idea: score a fat contract in China, where signs for English-speaking tourists are mangled by hilarious mis-translations. But he forgets the first rule: always bring your own translator because business deals involve much more than wining and dining. And when Daniel falls in love with a beautiful bureaucrat, even feelings take on different meanings. The repartee is fast and funny, and the timing is spot-on in this East-West comedy that embraces both sides of the cultural divide.
Original Producer - Lily Fan ‘01 LAW ‘04
Costume Designer - Anita Yavich DRAMA ‘95
