About this show

Lauded as "Wickedly funny. . . a brilliant play" by The Hollywood Reporter, Yellow Face tells the story of Asian activist and playwright D.H.H. (based on David Henry Hwang himself) who mistakenly casts a non-Asian actor in an Asian role in his new play. While resorting to, at times, convoluted solutions to avoid scrutiny from his contemporaries, D.H.H. is ultimately forced to reconsider his concept of his own Asian American identity in the mixed-up melting pot of contemporary America. Part fact, part fiction, provocative yet full of heart, this Obie Award winner mirrors Hwang's personal struggle with cultural identity, with self-deprecating humor.
