    Tony-award winning and two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright David Henry Hwang’s Chinglish, which has its world premiere at the Goodman Theatre last summer and opened on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre on October 27, 2011, scored two Jeff Awards, for Hwang (New Work-Play) and scenic designer David Korins (Scenic Design-Large), at the 43rd Annual Jeff Awards held at Drury Lane Oakbrook in Chicago on November 7, 2011.

    Chinglishis about the challenges of doing business in a culture whose language—and ways of communicating—are worlds apart from our own. An American businessman arrives in a bustling Chinese province looking to score a lucrative contact for his family’s sign-making firm. He soon finds that the complexities of such a venture far outstrip the expected differences in language, customs and manners – and calls into questions even the most basic assumptions of human conduct.
