Chinglish

Synopsis

An American businessman (Daniel Jenkins) with a shady past travels to China to seal a lucrative deal for his sign-making business, and soon realizes that much more than language gets lost in translation. Like Dorothy in Oz, he meets a colourful menagerie of characters, each one a crouching tiger with a hidden agenda – a gorgeous femme fatale (Oon Shu An), a three-faced politician (Adrian Pang), and a series of increasingly incompetent interpreters. As our dis-Orientated hero falls helplessly into intrigue with dodgy business partners, and hopelessly into bed with mysterious sleeping partners, he finds that this is business as un-usual as it could possibly get.

Performed in English & Mandarin, Chinglish is thrilling, topical and timely – a wildly funny comedy of errors and a cunningly astute comedy of manners that pokes fun at the West’s frenzied flirtation with China
