From acclaimed director and playwright Toshiki Okada, Artistic Director of the internationally-lauded chelfitsch Theatre Company, comes a chronicle of post-college ennui and 21st Century relationships in Japan’s Lost Decade Generation.  The static lives of several self-obsessed GenX internet cafĂ© clerks are thrown out of balance by the presence of a younger female co-worker, who rightly makes them question the meaning of their lives in a shifting socio-economic landscape.
“While these overeducated and underemployed members of the nation’s lost generation keep saying, “you know,” none of them do. Bittersweet drama…distinguished by a style that turns inarticulateness into the sort of poetry that rewards close listening.”        ~ The New York Times

An American businessman heads to Asia to score a lucrative contract for his family’s firm—but the deal isn’t the only thing getting lost in translation when he collides with a Communist minister, a bumbling consultant and a suspiciously sexy bureaucrat. Hilarity ensues in this new comedy by Hwang, award-winning playwright of M. Butterfly and Golden Child

This play may be particularly interesting to the Deaf Community, because a main part of the story is about cultural and linguistic differences, the use of interpreters, and what can happen due to mistranslations. The translations may be between spoken English and spoken Chinese, but the process and challenges are very like what can happen with interpreting between spoken English and ASL.
