Chinese translation by Grant Zhong
With Ya Han Chang, Stephanie Thompson*, Johnny Wu*, Michael Zlabinger*
In 1702, an eccentric English doctor travels to China with hopes that traditional Chinese medicine holds the key to unlocking the mechanics of the human pulse. But it's his wife who makes a momentous discovery when she falls for their translator and discovers that there is more than one way to fill the heart.
Following a sold-out engagement in Shanghai, Gold No Trade returns to New York with their new bilingual Mandarin/English comedy about mistranslation, Chinese medicine and the complexities of the human heart.
The running time of The Subtle Body is 90 minutes without an intermission.
