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.

A-Squared Theatre Workshop will perform Ching Chong Chinaman September 27 thru October 19 on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 3:30 pm.
Preview performance is on September 26th.

All performances will be held at The West Stage of The Raven Theatre Complex on 6157 North Clark Street in Chicago.
