Event Details

Come with TAP-Chicago, JASC Connect, and KACC to watch the final performance of Ching Chong Chinaman on October 19th at the Raven Theatre!

THE PLAY

Lauren Yee’s Ching Chong Chinaman satirizes the Asian American identity and explores what happens when a Chinese American family loses all sense of their cultural heritage. The ultra-assimilated Wong family is living the American dream, but not all is perfect. Upton, the Wongs' youngest child, dreams of becoming a World of Warcraft champion and the only things that stand in his way are his daily chores and homework. Desdemona, the Wongs' daughter, has goals of attending Princeton, but her math grades are not up to par. Upton comes up with an idea to solve both their problem by acquiring Jinqiang, a Chinese indentured servant who envisions an American dream of his own.
