About Young Jean Lee's Straight White Men

"Center Theatre Group presents Young Jean Lee’s gripping play Straight White Men. When Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas, they enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese. Then 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?

Writer, director, and filmmaker Young Jean Lee has been called 'the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation' by the New York Times and 'one of the best experimental playwrights in America' by Time Out New York." - Visions & Voices Event Description
