Straight White Men

From Thursday, February 2, 2017 to Sunday, March 26, 2017 February 2, 2017 March 26, 2017 InterContinental Chicago

As Ed, a widower, prepares to celebrate Christmas, he calls his three grown sons back to the family home. Games are played, Chinese food is ordered, and brotherly pranks and trashtalk distract them from the ongoing issue that threatens to ruin the festivities: when personal identity is essential and privilege is a problem, what is a straight white man to do? Raucous, surprising and fearless—experimental playwright Young Jean Lee takes an outside look at the traditional father/son play narrative, shedding new and often hilarious light on a story we think we know all too well.
