Casting for Andrew Keates production of David Henry Hwang’s Chinglish, playing at the Park Theatre from the 22nd March, has been confirmed.
Gyuri Sarossy (The Rover RSC, Two Noble Kinsmen RSC, The Absence of War Headlong) and Candy Ma (Project New Earth, Chinese Arts Centre and Yellow Earth Theatre) will star in the European premiere production, which will officially open at the Park Theatre on the 28th March.
Other members of the cast announced also include Lobo Chan, Duncan Harte, Siu-see Hung, Minhee Yeo and Windson Liong.
The production of Chinglish sees the return of David Henry Hwang to the Park Theatre, following the successful run of Yellow Face in 2013.
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.
Talking about the production arriving in London, David Henry Hwang said: “I’m thrilled that Chinglish will receive its European premiere at the Park Theatre, who did such an excellent production of my play Yellow Face. America’s current political turmoil only serves to strengthen China’s power and influence, which perhaps makes this play even more timely than when it first ran on Broadway.”
Chinglish marks the Park Theatre debut of Andrew Keates, whose credits include production of As Is, Dessa Rose Trafalgar Studios.
The production features designs by Tim McQuillen-Wright, lighting by Christopher Nairne, sound by James Nicholson.
Chinglish will play at the Park Theatre from the 22nd March until the 22nd April. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.parktheatre.co.uk/whats-on/chinglish
