A play, community workshop, and anti-racist fundraiser
Coming soon to a living room near you.
February - March 2020
Sky and her dad are white. Maya and her mom are Black. They are two young families living next door to each other in an idyllic, left-leaning neighborhood. But when Sky makes a racist remark to Maya, this perfect progressive facade cracks, giving way to a mysterious masked figure rising up from Sky’s backyard. Exposing the insidiousness of white supremacy -- how racism infiltrates even the most well-meaning of circles -- Gasping Whiteness is a play, community workshop, and a call to action.
Proceeds will be split between artists’ stipends and a local POC-led organization.
