New production images for Chinglish, now playing at the Park Theatre have been released as the production prepares to open on Tuesday 28th March.
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 the Park Theatre following the sell-out success of Yellow Face (Park Theatre 2013, National Theatre 2014 with the European premiere of his new comedy.
This production also marks the Park Theatre debut for director Andrew Keates, whose previous work includes As Is, Dessa Rose Trafalgar Studios.
Meanwhile, the cast will include Gyuri Sarossy, Candy Ma, Lobo Chan, Duncan Harte, Siu-see Hung, Minhee Yeo and Windson Liong.
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.”
The creative team for the production includes designs by Tim McQuillen-Wright, lighting by Christopher Nairne and sound by James Nicholson. Chinglish is produced by Tim Johanson Productions, in association with Julie Clare Productions, Arion Productions and Park Theatre.
