King of the Yees

September 17- October 17

By Lauren Yee

Bitingly hilarious and heartbreakingly honest, King of the Yees is an epic joyride across cultural, national, and familial borders that explores what it means to be a daughter, a Chinese-American, and truly be a Yee.

Directed by Gleason Bauer

Inspired by Oscar Wilde's short story, The Selfish Giant, eleven-year-old Maggie and her mother, Susan, have come to be with Susan's mother in her final days. Through friendships with a hospice worker and a nine-year-old neighbor, Maggie learns the importance of forgiveness. Our Theater for Young Audiences production will perform at the Playhouse on October Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. It will also tour to area middle schools.
