    What makes people who they are? Is it the color of their skin or the content of their character? This question and more are asked in David Henry Hwang's semi-autobiographical documentary-style play “Yellow Face,” in which an Asian-American playwright, in response to a blatant act of “yellow face” casting, hires the perfect actor to play his Asian-American leading role—only to find out later that he is actually white. Intersecting with the Donorgate scandals of the 1990s, this play is a humorous, zany, and ultimately moving study of what it means to be an American, and the lengths people will go to save their “face.”
