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 spotlight: Martin, a
Brooklyn-born high powered attorney for a white-shoe law firm in
St. Louis, MO; Mara Lynn, a housewife and former homecoming queen
in Fayetteville, NC; 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 our culture.
