White People

2 Male, 1 Female

J.T. Rogers Price: $9.99

What does it mean to be a white American?

What does it mean for any American to live in a country that is not the one you were promised?

White People is a controversial and darkly funny play about the lives of three ordinary Americans placed under the spot-light ...

Martin, a Brooklyn–born high powered attorney for a white-shoe law firm in St. Louis

Mara Lynn, a housewife and former home-coming queen in Fayetteville

And Alan, a young professor struggling to find his way in New York City

Through heart-wrenching confessions, they wrestle with guilt, prejudice, and the price they and their children must pay for their actions

White People is a candid, brutally honest meditation on race and language in American culture

“In brutally honest confessions that eat through protective layers like acid from a battery ... the piece never strikes a false note ... Rare plays like this one help lift the veil” ~ LA Times

“... a sobering, unsettling but deeply rewarding look at a combustible issue many of us prefer to sidestep ... White People is not easy to sit through. It raises questions as it challenges our assumptions about race” ~ Salt Lake Tribune
