A Staged Reading of "A Book By Its Cover"
Yangtze Repertory Theatre of America presents a Staged Reading of “A Book By Its Cover” by Damon Chua
Directed by Chongren Fan
Long-lost cousins Millie Wu, a Chinese American, and Chan Pui Mun, from southern China, reach across the Pacific Ocean for a family reunion that starts well but soon descends into misunderstanding and conflict, as selfish and economic motives get the better of them. A BOOK BY ITS COVER is a hilarious yet pointed glimpse of two lives becoming intertwined and whose fortunes reverse, set against a world where China begins to challenge the United States as a world power.
Cast: Esther Chen, Edgar Eguia, Elisabeth Ng, Nick Ryan, and Shelley Valfer Stage Manager: Nicholas To
