Springing from the author’s personal experiences in China over the past five years, Chinglish follows a Midwestern American businessman desperately seeking to score a lucrative contact for his family’s firm as he travels to China only to discover how much he doesn't understand. Named for the unique and often comical third language that evolves from attempts to translate Chinese signs into English, Chinglish explores the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language – and ways of communicating – are worlds apart from our own. Hwang’s “best new work since M. Butterfly,” his "shrewd, timely and razor-sharp comedy” (Chicago Tribune) received its Broadway premiere in fall 2011.
