King of the Yees
About King of the Yees
For nearly 20 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 150 years ago in the wake of the Gold Rush. 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 truly means to be a Yee.
