Set in New York's Chinatown, Scissors is a moving portrait of a weekly haircutting ritual between an elderly Chinese manservant and his Caucasian ex-employer
A Beautiful Country chronicles the turbulent history of Asians in America through the eyes of an immigrant drag queen, Miss Visa Denied
In Wonderland, a family working toward their American dream experiences dramatic and unexpected developments that threaten to shatter their hope
Although aesthetically and tonally different from one another, Yew's four plays evoke an epic backdrop to the dreams, loves, longings, and lives of Asians in America
Chay Yew has been hailed by Time magazine as "a promising new voice in American theater"
In this collection of four new plays, Yew continues to explore issues of artistic expression, self-identity, and the immigrant experience
