"Where are you really from?"

Yellow Face is a play written by Tony Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang. The play follows Hwang and his misadventures after he accidentally casts a White actor in the Asian lead role of his new play. Yellow Face turns our assumptions about what it means to be of a particular race, nationality, or community on their heads. The play interrogates issues of identity, representation, political persecution, and how all these things are reflected in the media. Heavily awarded, Yellow Face explores these themes as a fast paced comedy that leaves everyone laughing and lets no one off the hook.
