david henry hwang's golden child in chicago

This one's for you, Chicago... The midwest premiere of David Henry Hwang's Golden Child is currently playing in Chicago, presented by the Silk Road Theatre Project.
Set in China in the early 1900’s, the Obie Award winning Golden Child tells the story of Eng Tieng-Bin, a wealthy merchant who returns from abroad filled with Western ideas and Christian beliefs and hopes of liberating China from its superstitious past. But in a polygamous marriage riddled with jealousy and suspicion, what will Eng’s religious conversion mean for each of his three wives? Can new ideas and old traditions co-exist or are they destined to collide?
The production runs through April 22 at the Historic Chicago Temple Building. For more tickets and show info, go here.
