An unflinchingly honest, darkly funny examination of race and language in America, J. T. Rogers’ White People uses the interwoven monologues of three white people – a bitter former homecoming queen who is now a housewife with a special needs child; a New York college professor whose family was attacked by a group of black men, and a smug conservative lawyer – to work through the blame, guilt and assumptions related to feelings about their own whiteness and the non-whiteness of others.
“never strikes a false note…”
“sobering, unsettling but deeply rewarding.”
