Ching Chong Chinaman

Date: 7 Jan 2021

Presented by Slanted Theatre, a new theatre collective established to showcase Asian-Australian emerging artists, Lauren Yee’s Ching Chong Chinaman is a brash, outlandish exploration of identity, race, assimilation, and what it means to be a family.

The Wongs are American as apple pie. Desdemona dreams of Princeton but could use some help with her calculus. Her brother Upton wants to be a World of Warcraft champion but needs more free time to train. Upton solves both their problems by bringing an indentured servant home one day, but they soon discover that Ching Chong has American dreams of his own.
