Yee, a graduate of UC San Diego’s MFA Playwriting Program, was living in San Diego when a friend suggested they go see a band perform at a street festival in San Diego.
The playwright and her friends almost missed the band’s performance at the street festival, Yee recalled. But the group made it right on time.
