"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.

Acclaimed director Andrew Keates (As Is, Dessa Rose Trafalgar Studios) makes his Park Theatre debut.
