Coming Soon: “Chinglish” by Pangdemonium

September 14, 2015

Chinglish1Event: “Chinglish” presented by Pangdemonium
Venue: Drama Centre Theatre
Run: 9th – 25th Oct 2015

To round off its 2015 “Transformation Trilogy” season, Pangdemonium presents its first-ever bilingual play, David Henry Hwang’s “Chinglish” – a thrilling, topical and timely tale of an American businessman’s adventures when he travels to China to seal a lucrative deal.

The comedy runs from 9th to 25th October at the Drama Centre Theatre.

Much like Dorothy in Oz, the disoriented hero Daniel Cavanaugh (played by Daniel Jenkins), soon realizes that more than language gets lost in translation, as he meets a colourful menagerie of characters in his journey, each one a crouching tiger with a hidden agenda: a gorgeous femme fatale, a three-faced politician, and a trio of terrifying translators.

Lost in the world of a different language and culture, he falls helplessly into intrigue with bewildering business partners, and hopelessly into bed with bewitching sleeping partners.

Performed in English and Mandarin, “Chinglish” stars veterans Daniel Jenkins and Adrian Pang; rising star Oon Shu An; MediaCorp Artiste Guo Liang, and ST Life! Theatre Award winners Audrey Luo and Matt Grey.

Written by Tony Award-winning David Henry Hwang (“M Butterfly”, “Yellowface”), “Chinglish” is a wildly funny comedy of errors and a cunningly astute comedy of manners; and has been hailed as “one of the funniest plays in memory” by Chicago Sun-Times.

Play Duration: Approx. 2hrs (including 15mins interval)
