King of the Yees by Lauren Yee
For nearly twenty years, playwright Lauren Yee’s father, Larry, has been a driving force in the Yee Family Association, a seemingly obsolescent Chinese American men’s club formed a hundred fifty years ago in the wake of the Gold Rush and the building of the transcontinental railroad. But when her father goes missing, Lauren must plunge into the rabbit hole of San Francisco Chinatown and confront a world both foreign and familiar. At once bitingly hilarious and heartbreakingly honest, "King of the Yees" is an epic joyride across cultural, national, and familial borders that explores what it means to truly be a Yee. Directed by guest artist Bi Jean Ngo and featuring lighting design by senior Angelica Qin.
