King of the Yees

Going against tradition isn’t easy with 36 generations of ancestors to please.

Growing up just outside of San Francisco’s Chinatown, Lauren Yee has always felt like an outsider, especially compared to her father Larry, the unofficial king of the Chinese community. But when her father disappears, she must embrace her heritage for the first time in order to find him. Explore America’s largest Chinatown through the eyes of a new generation in this hilarious and heartfelt comedy.

Produced in association with Center Theatre Group.
