About A Deal

Like many upper-middle-class Chinese families, Mr. & Mrs. Li are proud to give their daughter, Li Su, the life they could only dream of – an Ivy League education, an apartment in Manhattan, the chance to become an actor. So why is she telling everyone she was an orphan and a bulldozer killed her mother?

On a home buying journey in NYC, Mr. & Mrs. Li face fluctuations in the Chinese yuan against the dollar, East/West ideological conflicts and the realization their only daughter is turning into a dangerous stranger.

A DEAL is a dark comedy by acclaimed Chinese playwright Zhu YI | directed by John Giampietro. It tours simultaneously in China in Mandarin while having its world premiere at Urban Stages.

Starring: Alan Ariano, Pun Bandhu, Helen Coxe, Lydia Gaston, Wei-Yi Lin & Seth Moore.
