WHITE
written by James Ijames
directed by Corey McDaniel and Tayo Talabi

Gus is an artist. A very good artist. He’s just not a famous artist. So when a major art museum puts out a call for “new perspectives,” Gus – a white guy – decides to seize his opportunity. He hires Vanessa, a black actress, to perform as Balkonaé Townsend, a brash and political artist that will fit the museum’s desire for “new voices” to present his work as her own. Everything is great until Balkonaé embraces her power and the two become entwined in a knot of confusion. As Vanessa gets more deeply into her role, the plan spins out of control, while the play explores intersectionality of race, gender, sexuality, and art.
