Berkeley Repertory Theatre's 2012-13 season in Berkeley, CA, will include the world premiere of Dan LeFranc's comedy and the West Coast premiere of David Henry Hwang's Chinglish, the Tony Award-winning company announced on March 1.

Leigh Silverman will again direct Chinglish, about an American businessman facing language barriers in China, as she did in Chicago and on Broadway.

LeFranc is the author of Off-Broadway's current The Big Meal. His new play premiering at the Rep is called Troublemaker, or The Freakin Kick-A Adventures of Bradley Boatright.

Troublemaker is set in working-class Rhode Island, where "Bradley and his bestest friend tangle with rich kid Jake Miller and some middle-school goons," according to Rep notes. "Their nemesis has help from a bunch of zombies and grown-ups! Put down that backpack, turn up the soundtrack, and let's cut class. Faster than a speedboat, more fun than a video game, Troublemaker has a sassy mouth and an irresistible heart of gold. "
