STRAIGHT WHITE MEN
by Young Jean Lee
directed by Sasha Brätt
June 3 – 24, 2022

Ed and his sons are celebrating the holidays in their traditional style. As Jake and Drew sit around eating Chinese takeout, playing games, and pranking each other, it quickly becomes apparent that something is wrong with their brother Matt.  One brother’s existential crisis prompts a spirited and comedic dialogue on the value of privilege in an evolving society and the tragedy of failing to live up to one’s potential.

“Ms. Lee’s fascinating play goes far beyond cheap satire, ultimately becoming a compassionate and stimulating exploration of one man’s existential crisis.” – NY Times

“To cut to the obvious, STRAIGHT WHITE MEN is a loaded title…But the play turns out to have a disarming gentleness to it. Lee has more sympathy for her subject than scorn.” – LA Times
