Philip Kan Gotanda’s newest play about the original Siamese twins, Chang and Eng Bunker.
“Arguably the first Asian-American superstars, Chang and Eng were born in Siam and spent their early lives as a touring “freak” exhibition. Charismatic and canny, they bought out their contract and toured themselves around the world, advising the king of Siam and carousing with the English aristocracy before settling down on a Southern plantation, marrying sisters and fathering 21 children between them. Gotanda’s script illuminates the Bunker brothers’ extraordinary saga, showing their keen business sense, indomitable spirit, and the touching relationship between the two brothers, making I Dream of Chang and Eng a powerful and moving portrait.”

It’s going to be a great show. I can tell you that firsthand. Highly, highly recommend you go see it. And I’m not just being biased because I’m assistant to the playwright. =)
I’m going opening night. Another incentive for you to go!
