"Straight White Men" Calendar


November – December 2015


“Straight White Men”

Written and Directed by Young Jean Lee

Presented in collaboration with the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA West Coast Premiere.


In “Straight White Men,” written and directed by Lee and co-commissioned by CTG, Lee offers a traditionally structured take on the classic American father-son drama. Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas. They enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks and takeout Chinese, but find themselves confronting 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?
