Straight White Men
Author(s): Young Jean Lee
As Ed, a widower, prepares to celebrate Christmas, he calls his three grown sons back to the family home. Games are played, Chinese food is ordered, and brotherly pranks and trashtalk distract them from the ongoing issue that threatens to ruin the festivities: when identity matters and privilege is a problem, what is a straight white man to do?
Young Jean Lee takes an outside look at the traditional father/son play narrative, shedding new light on a story we think we know all too well.
A Korean American playwright whose work revels in subversive explorations of identity, Lee investigates straight white male identity .
