Breakdown

An American businessman who’s desperately looking to score a lucrative contract for his family’s firm travels to China only to learn how much he doesn’t understand: his translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xi, the beautiful, seemingly supportive government official who talks the talk – but what is she saying, anyway? An uproarious comedy from one of East West Player's favorite playwrights.

DANIEL CAVANAUGH: a businessman, Caucasian, American, Male 40’s.
PETER TIMMS: a consultant, Caucasian, British, Male 40’s. Must speak FLUENT MANDARIN.
XI YAN: Vice Minister of Culture, Chinese, Female, 40’s. Must speak FLUENT MANDARIN.
MISS QIAN: a translator, Chinese, Female. (Also plays PROSECUTOR LI: female, 30s.) Must speak FLUENT MANDARIN.
