In his semi-autobiographical play, “Yellow Face,” David Henry Hwang takes an acerbic look at race, cultural identity, politics and the media in America through a mix of personal accounts and wild imaginings.

Both humorous and poignant, the story centers around the events that transpire after Hwang mistakenly casts a white male, Marcus G. Dahlman, as an Asian man in one of the leading roles of his play. Hwang also explores the relationship with his father, HYH.
