Yellow Face by David Henry Hwang

Yellow FaceThis play by David Henry Hwang (author of M. Butterfly) grapples with the issues of racial performativity, mistaken identity, community, and American culture. Hwang writes himself into this play as a character and engages with events from his personal life as well as fictional representations and characters in order to question the Asian American identity in the United States. A quick read that will leave you thinking about its implications long after the curtain falls.
