***** - Time Out **** "warm and hilarious" - The List **** - The Guardian **** “compelling”– The Scotsman In 2013, American-born, Irish-bred Des Bishop moved to China, became fluent in Mandarin, and followed through on his dream of performing stand-up to a Chinese audience. This adventure also led him on a search to find a girlfriend at a Beijing marriage market, to a job in a very busy restaurant, and eventually to an entertaining appearance on a TV dating show with 40 million viewers! Made in China is a funny fantastic journey through a country (and people) we all feel we need to know better. The openness and honesty of his presenting style combined with his restless imagination and insightful comic observations make Des Bishop a “must-see” for fans of unique, enquiring and entertaining comedy.

Additional Notes:
Great Kills, written in a style reminiscent of such plays as David Mamet's American Buffalo, and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night, is a darkly comic, emotionally gripping tale of a get-rich-quick scheme that goes awry. With the changing landscape of mental health, Meadowbrook, the institution where Mr. G has worked in maintenance for over thirty years, is shutting down. When Mr. G mentions to his son, Tim, who's living home after having lost his position as an adjunct professor of literature, how the institution's furniture -- the kind of stuff you find in a doctor's office -- is lying abandoned in a field, he dreams of making a fortune from selling the salvage. To finance the plan, he involves his estranged childhood friend, restaurateur, Robert. Over the course of a drunken evening of scheming, the plan becomes less real, as the men's desperate realities become more apparent, and a devastating family secret is revealed.
