Ching Chong Chinaman
“Ching Chong Chinaman,” a Northwest premiere presented by SIS Productions, is a hilarious satire about an Asian American family that doesn’t realize they’re Asian.
Meet the Wong family, as all-American as apple pie: Ed likes to play golf, Grace wants another child, Desdemona is desperate to get into Princeton and Upton is working towards gaming superstardom. But when Upton gets an indentured Chinese servant to help him with his homework, life in the Wong household takes an interesting turn. Flipping every cliché about Asian-American identity upside down, this award-winning play by Lauren Yee is an “exhilarating send-up” of the American dream.
“Ching Chong Chinaman” runs March 26 – April 24, 2010. Performances are Fridays at 8 p.m. and Saturdays at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students/seniors/actors. Group rates are also available. For reservations and information, please call (206) 323-9443, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.sis-productions.org.
