By David Henry Hwang
Directed by Natsu Onoda Power
A witty, engaging cultural satire about political correctness and racial identity. When a Caucasian actor is cast as the Asian pimp in Broadway’s Miss Saigon, David Henry Hwang leads a public outcry protesting the cultural insensitivity. But when Hwang himself unwittingly casts a white actor to play the Asian protagonist of his new play, a mélange of hilarious hypocrisy ensues. From the Tony Award-winning playwright of M. Butterfly.
Deadline to purchase tickets is Thursday, Feb 20th.
Be please advised there are no ticket sales at the door.
Presented with GLOE at the Washington DCJCC

Straight Acting: "Passing" in America
The politics of what it means to "pass" as another race or culture are hilariously explored in Yellow Face. Our LGBTQ expert panel will share stories and insights into the power of passing, and choosing not to pass- when we're talking about gender and sexuality. The talkback is free and open to the public.
