"Great laughs...unexpectedly moving" - Examiner.com

Meet the Wong family: as all-American as apple pie. Ed likes to play golf, Grace wants another child, Desdemona is desperate to get into Princeton, and Upton is working towards gaming superstardom. When Upton gets an indentured Chinese servant to help him with his homework, life in the Wong household takes an interesting turn . . . Flipping every cliche about Asian American identity upside down, this award-winning play by Lauren Yee is an "exhilarating send-up" of the American dream.

Produced by: Lorna Chin, Kathy Hsieh, Jane Moon, & Miko Premo with support from Chris Monsos, Lisa Marie Nakamura, Serin Ngai & Roger Tang.

Featuring: Jose Abaoag, Stan Asis, Elizabeth Daruthayan, Kathy Hsieh, Kay Nahm and Christian Ver!
