Straight White Men

A well-meaning father and his three middle-aged sons gather for their annual Christmas celebration, continuing their traditions of trash-talking, practical jokes, and Chinese takeout. But this holiday season, they are forced to confront a deceptively simple question: When identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man? Lee's funny and moving play shows its archetypal characters confronting a pivotal cultural moment where the desire to do the "right thing" is at odds with their self-fulfilling destinies.
