A staged reading, without sets or costumes, of "Yellow Face" by David Henry Hwang, a satirical play about the once-common practice of casting White actors to play Asian roles on stage and screen. "Yellow Face" is based on the true story of what happened when the playwright, an outspoken advocate against yellow-face casting, unwittingly cast a White actor to play the Asian lead in his Broadway-bound play. A wickedly funny and provocative night of theatre. Recommended audience 14+.
