Sky and her dad are white. Maya and her mom are Black. They are two young families living side-by-side 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 Skys 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.
100% OF TICKET REVENUE WILL BE DONATED TO BLACK LIVES MATTER - LOUISVILLE.
If you want to reserve tickets but would rather not pay the Brown Paper Ticket fee, please send us an email -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- and we'll save you a seat!
If the ticket price is a financial encumbrance, please let us know. We want everyone to be able to see this play.
RE: Parking. There is a parking lot right next to the house. We've gotten the go-ahead from Plumbers Supply to use that lot after business hours, as well as all day Sunday. Please do NOT park in the lot across the street.
This play deals frankly with white supremacy, and its effects on our hearts, bodies, and minds. The subject matter is intense, but we encourage parents, especially white parents, to bring their children. If you'd like to peruse a copy of the script before deciding what's best for your family, please email us at email@example.com.
