The Hyphenated American - Four Plays - Red & Scissors & A Beautiful Country & Wonderland $16

Chay Yew

Published by Grove Press

In Red, a magical, mysterious drama set during China's Cultural Revolution, a renowned actor stands his ground against a young revolutionary in a struggle that pits politics against free expression and one generation against another

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
