David Henry Hwang, August 13

August 8, 2011
Hello UW APIAFSA members,

Thought you might be interested in meeting one of our most esteemed Asian-American playwrights…

ReAct is pleased to co-present David Henry Hwang’s Pulitzer-nominated smash hit, YELLOW FACE, the award-winning new comedy about mistaken racial identity. In this behind-the-scenes tale, David, a celebrated playwright leads the protest against yellow-face casting in Miss Saigon, only to later inadvertently cast a white actor as the lead Asian role in his own Broadway show. Combining real events, real headlines and real people, with an ironic twist, YELLOW FACE explores and pokes fun at the role of race in modern American society, politics and show business. Don’t miss this hilarious "mock" theatrical docu-drama.

Richard Hugo House in Capitol Hill
August 5 – September 3, 2011

Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang will attend the August 13th evening performance of YELLOW FACE and participate in a special post-play discussion.
Mr. Hwang will also be speaking about and signing copies of his plays at the Elliott Bay Book Company on Sunday, August 14th.
