Yellow Face

Tony award-winner and Pulitzer Prize finalist David Henry Hwang, explores the impact race has had on the East Asian experience in America.

Yellow Face straddles the line between reality and fiction, questioning what race really means, looking at how politics and media interact in our society and, ultimately, asking us to reflect on who we really are.

Audio described performance on Saturday 24 May at 3pm, preceded by a touch tour at 1.45pm

This production originated at Park Theatre.
