AM I WHITE
by Adrienne Dawes
directed by Kevin R. Free


ABOUT THE PLAY:
When Neo-Nazi terrorist Wesley Connor returns to prison after a failed bomb plot, he is confronted with the two identities that threaten his position within the White Order of Thule most: fatherhood and his own mixed race heritage.
Inspired by the true story of Leo Felton and Erica Chase, Am I White travels between linear narrative, recurring dreams and minstrel show nightmare to discover if a singular self exists in post-modern, "post-racial" America.



ABOUT ADRIENNE:
Adrienne is the recipient of the 2004 Stanley and Evelyn Lipkin Prize for Playwriting, a Marchbanks Family Foundation Grant, a Fringe Festival Commission Award, Seed Support Grant, and Finer Point Funding Grant from Scriptworks. She was named a semifinalist for the 2003 Mildred and Albert Panowski Playwriting Award and 2012 Risk is THIS Festival (Cutting Ball Theatre). Most recently, her play Am I White was recognized as a finalist for the 2012 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference and 2012 Bay Area Playwrights Festival.

Adrienne Dawes' plays include Am I White, You Are Pretty, Jesus Loves Good Christians, edgewater stoner and Heritage, Her-i-tage and Hair-i-tage.
Her work has been produced by American Repertory Theatre of London, Live Girls Theatre!, Little Fish Theatre Company, New Jersey Repertory Company, Hyde Park Theater, St Idiot Collective, and American Theater Company (Chicago, IL). Her plays have been published by Playscripts, Smith & Kraus, Heuer Publishing and Vintage Books.
