About the Show:
ReAct Theatre and the Pork Filled Players (with sponsorship by the Furuta Lee Foundation) proudly present the Northwest premiere of Yellow Face, the Pulitzer-finalist and Obie-award winning comic “mockumentary” about mistaken racial identity by David Henry Hwang. Casting himself as the protagonist, Hwang recounts his (maybe true, maybe not) hard-hitting attempts to protest yellow face casting in Miss Saigon on Broadway — and his own accidental casting of a white man as Asian. Mixing real events, real headlines and real people with fictional characters and dramatic license, Yellow Face explores and pokes fun at the role of race in modern American society, media, politics and theatre.
