What was the first racially integrated play?
Because the origins of theater remain woefully uncertain, there is little one can say about the early days of theater and the plays it produced. Historically speaking it has been generally accepted that theater revolved around mythology. In this regard, the revered and sacred rituals of humanity were, for all intents and purposes, the first plays to be produced. That is, at least, historically speaking. The earliest examples of ritual that might have evolved into what we now know as theater are the ancient Egyptian "Pyramid Texts" that are nearly five thousand years old. These Pyramid Texts include the Memphite Drama that recounts the tale of death and resurrection of the god Osiris and the coronation of his son Horus. Because this drama includes characters that are gods and lesser gods one could argue that this would be the first racially integrated play. However, one suspects, that is not what the questioner meant by racially integrated. Simply using words such as First, Racially, Integrated, Play, Theater and so on does not produce much in the way of any thing near a definitive answer as to what that first play might have been. Indeed, the results yielded by such search engines focused on modern day integration of theater much of which is for the time period of 1960 to 1970. It is this writers opinion that Othello by William Shakespeare probably serves as the most famous of "first" plays to racially integrate characters into a play. The story of a Moorish Prince General who rose to power and prominence only to be brought down by his own hubris.

Who invented the first computer chips?
The first integrated circuit chip was invented by Jack Kilby working at Texas Instruments in 1958. However it was made of germanium and although it integrated all the components into one chip, the interconnections between them had to be made individually by hand under a microscope. The first prototype integrated circuit he produced was a one transistor analog RC oscillator. The first practical integrated circuit chip was invented by Robert Noyce working at Fairchild Semiconductor in 1959. It was made of silicon and using Fairchild's new planar process developed for making individual transistors, integrated not only all components but also the interconnections; as well as passivating the chip making hermetic sealed packages unnecessary, permitting the use of cheaper plastic packages. The first prototype integrated circuit he produced (in early 1960) was a four transistor Direct Coupled Transistor Logic (DCTL) flip-flop. The first commercially available microprocessor integrated circuit was invented by Federico Faggin, Marcian "Ted" Hoff, and Masatoshi Shima working at Intel in 1971.

What was invented in 1958 that combines all parts of a computer?
If you are thinking of the Jack Kilby integrated circuit (see image above) of 1958, it was only a one transistor analog sine wave oscillator - not all parts of a computer! It was not until 1971 that Intel put a complete 4 bit CPU (the Intel 4004) on an integrated circuit - but not all parts of a computer. One of the first integrated circuits to actually put all parts of a computer on one integrated circuit was the Intel 8048 microcontroller in 1976.
How many transistors on an integrated circuit?
ICs have been built with as few as two to as many as hundreds of billions of transistors. I believe the first germanium prototype IC built by Kilby may have had only one transistor (it was an integrated circuit not for having many transistors, but because it integrated both resistors and transistors into a single germanium crystal).
