This play by David Henry Hwang (author of M. Butterfly) grapples with the issues of racial performativity, mistaken identity, community, and American culture. Hwang writes himself into this play as a character and engages with events from his personal life as well as fictional representations and characters in order to question the Asian American identity in the United States. A quick read that will leave you thinking about its implications long after the curtain falls.
