Zayd Dorhn’s culture clash comedy Outside People is extending at the Vineyard Theatre. The off-Broadway production, directed by Evan Cabnet, will now play through February 4.
Set in modern-day Beijing, Outside People is the story of a young American man, Malcolm who falls in love with a young Chinese woman, Xiao Mei. But as his eyes open to the subtle social, political and economic forces that inform their relationship, he must confront his complex place in this foreign culture, the friendship that brought him there, and his own deepest fears and desires.
Co-produced by the Vineyard Theatre and Naked Angels, the cast of Outside People features Li Jun Li, Matthew Dellapina, Nelson Lee and Sonequa Martin-Green.
