Nowadays, everyone wants to do business with China. Daniel, a Midwestern American businessman, travels to the provincial capital of Guiyang in the hope of landing a contract for his family firm, only to learn how much he doesn't understand. His translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xu, a government official who may be trying to help him -- at least that's what he thinks she's saying.

For The Record:

For the record, “Chinglish” had its World Premiere at the Goodman in Chicago on June 27, 2011. The production was originally set as part of The Public Theater’s 2011-2012 Season.
