Stages Repertory Theatre presents Straight White Men
The Stages Repertory Theatre production of Straight White Men by Young Jean Lee marks the Texas premiere of the acclaimed play.
In this subtly subversive play, one of America’s most daring contemporary playwrights asks a provocative question: “What do we want straight white men to do that they’re not doing? And what happens when they do that?”
In Straight White Men, Ed and his three adult sons - all straight, white and privileged - come together to celebrate Christmas with cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and Chinese takeout. They’re progressive, socially responsible and full of good intentions. But when one son’s sense of duty leads him in a surprising direction, the holiday festivities give way to a powerful confrontation between the desire to do good and the pressure to be successful.
