La Mama presents the Australasian Chinese Theatre Company’s production
> “Our Man in Beijing” by Moni Lai Storz.
> The Australian junior manager, John, goes to Beijing to fix a contract with
> a famous Chinese cover girl that will accelerate his promotion in his
> advertising firm back in Melbourne. Instead he finds many cross-cultural
> challenges for which he was ill prepared to manage. In the midst of being
> navigated through these dangerous waters by friends and foes alike, John
> falls in love. This monumental event escapes John till he finds himself
> applying for a spousal visa at the Australian High Commission in Beijing,
> much to his surprise. Our Man in Beijing is an inter-cultural love story
> that will make us laugh at the differences in the Australian and Chinese
> cultures, performed by a cast of professional actors with relevant ethnic
> backgrounds and a history of critical acclaim for their performance work.
