Straight White Men
By Young Jean Lee
Directed by Zeina Salame
It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has invited his three grown sons back home for pranks, Chinese takeout, and gossip. In between the male bonding rituals, dance moves, and deep thoughts about money, work, and ambition, we just might find out what makes these men tick… or maybe not? Don’t miss this alternately hilarious and thought-provoking satire.
“The signal surprise of Straight White Men, written by the ever-audacious Young Jean Lee, is that the play is not a full-frontal assault on the beings of the title…Ms. Lee’s fascinating play goes far beyond cheap satire, ultimately becoming a compassionate and stimulating exploration of one man’s existential crisis. Believe it or not, Ms. Lee wants us to sympathize with the inexpressible anguish of her protagonist, a middle-aged, upper-middle-class straight white man…[A] mournful and inquisitive play…” —NY Times.
