January’s play is Well-Intentioned White People by Rachel Lynett
After an attack influenced by her race, Cass wants to just forget about it and move on with her life but her (white) roommate and the dean of the university push her to “make an example of it.” Suddenly Cass is roped into planning a diversity day and trying to convince her roommate not to plan a sit-in. Well-Intentioned White People explores how liberals attempt to deal with discrimination not directed at them and how sometimes “well intentions” can be just as problematic.
We will also be announcing the rest of our 2019 season directly after the reading. Join us as we kick off Flexible Grey’s second season in Dallas!
