Princeton Chinese Theater in partnership with the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater presents Teahouse, a play by Lao She.

Most of the play is performed in English with small portions performed in Chinese. A post-show panel discussion takes place at 4:45 p.m. after the November 17th 2 p.m. matinee performance.
