YOU MEAN TO DO ME HARM

Written by Christopher Chen

Directed by Bill English

PLAY DETAILS

An innocuous comment at a dinner of two interracial couples leads to a surreal escalation of Cold War-style paranoia. You Mean to Do Me Harm is a psychological exploration of Chinese and American foreign relations, and of the personal relations we hold most dear.

San Francisco Playhouse’s production of You Mean to Do Me Harm is made possible by Executive Producer Rowland Weinstein, Producers David and Cynthia Bogolub, and Associate Producers Tom and Mary Foote.
