Tackling the reality of power and privilege, "Straight White Men" follows Ed and his three adult sons who, when they come together to celebrate Christmas, enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese. But amidst the camaraderie, they confront a problem that even being a happy family can’t solve: When identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man? Written by award-winning playwright, Young Jean Lee and directed by PURE Theatre co-founder, Rodney Lee Rogers, Straight White Men will feature a cast including Randy Neale, David Mandel, Paul Rolfes, and R.W. Smith.
