"Wonderfully funny and highly entertaining!"

A triumph in any language."

-Associated Press
"A comic gold mine!"
-NY Post
-Time Out New York
"A lethal comedy about business, sex and the failure to communicate that bristles with intelligence."
-Bloomberg News
"A witty study in modern-day miscommunication, that erupts into explosive laughter!"
-NJ Newsroom

CHINGLISH is the new comedy about the misadventures of miscommunication. It is the story of an American businessman desperate to launch a new enterprise in China. 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 absolutely can't have.
