The Wongs, the Chans, and -most importantly - the Yees.For nearly twenty years, playwright Lauren Yees father Larry has been a driving force in the Yee Family Association. And now Lauren is writing a play. Or trying to. About legacy, about obsolescence, about the great and powerful house of Yee! Or something like that.Amid a backdrop of crumbling Chinatowns and all-too-lifelike museums, Lauren races through history, space, and the fourth wall to find her fathers story and chronicle this disappearing piece of American culture. KING OF THE YEES is a new play about the communities we choose and the communities we inherit.
