Leigh Silverman will direct a reading of David Henry Hwang's Chinglish, to be offered June 10 & 11 at 7pm at The Lark Play Development Center. The presentation is being offered in association with the Public Theater.

Hwang's play focuses on a non-Chinese American businessman, who, seeking to make a deal in a provincial Chinese capital, falls into an extra-marital affair with a female Chinese official, despite their language differences. The production will be performed in English and Mandarin with projected translations.

Hwang won the Tony Award for M. Butterfly, and was Tony-nominated for Golden Child and the revised book for the Broadway revival of Flower Drum Song. He was also a Pulitzer Prize finalist for both M. Butterfly and Yellow Face, and received an Obie Award for the latter, also directed by Silverman.

The reading is free and open to the public.
