Porcelain: Award-Winning Drama About Race, Murder & Passion3400 Main Street Houston, TX 77002
The play Porcelain, written by Chay Yew, the current Executive Artistic Director at Victory Gardens Theater in Chicago, has been hailed as "a promising new voice in American theater" by Time Magazine. Yew was initially banned from his native Singapore for his provocative plays but now they have been performed across the United States and abroad and focus on sensitive issues that reveal conflicts between race and sexuality. The main character, John Lee, is a young Chinese-British gay man in London who works for his immigrant father's restaurant and whose performance on his exams have granted him admission to study at Cambridge University. He searches for his identity as a lonely man who finds comfort in connecting with other men who are strangers by engaging in sex in public bathrooms. At the beginning of the story, John Lee has been arrested for the shooting death of a Caucasian man in a public lavatory. The play unravels the depth of his character and his ultimate motive for committing a crime of passion. See it at MATCH - Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston.
