Named one of Time magazine's 10 best plays of 2011, Chinglish is the latest theatrical work by David Henry Hwang, the Tony and Obie Award-winning writer of M. Butterfly. This culture-clash comedy of mistranslation and manners tells the comedic story of a Midwestern American businessman who's trying to conduct an important deal in a bustling Chinese province. He soon learns just how much he doesn't comprehend: his translators are unreliable, his consultant may be a fraud, and he is captivated by Xu, a beautiful, seemingly supportive government official whom he has trouble understanding.

Life With Father
By Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Directed by Jaynie Roberts
This delightful comedy set in the late 1800s centers around the unfortunate discovery that "Father" (Clarence Day, Sr.) has not been baptized and is therefore doomed. Father's bubbly wife, Vinnie, and their four red-headed sons plot and scheme to get Father baptized and in the process restore the legitimacy of the marriage and all four births! A constant stream of maids and out-of-town visitors add to the hilarity, while in the background, the eldest son discovers the unexpected charm of females.
