Straight White Men
December 12, 2018 - March 2, 2019 | Keating Theatre
REGIONAL PREMIERE. Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee takes a hilariously ruthless look at the classic American father-son drama. It’s Christmas Eve, and Ed has gathered his three adult sons to celebrate with matching pajamas, trash talking, amusing antics, and Chinese takeout. But when a question they can’t answer interrupts their holiday cheer, each is forced to confront their own identity. It’s a funny family Christmas that no one can forget.
Straight White Men by Young Jean Lee. Run Time: 90 minutes without an intermission
Straight White Men is best suited for adult audiences. Patrons should please note that this play contains explicit language and adult themes. In addition, there is loud explicit music during the preshow.
