Well Intentioned White People
By RACHEL LYNETT
Directed by TIFFANY NICHOLE GREENE
After a racial incident she would rather forget, Cass is forced into “making an example of it” by her well intentioned roommate and the dean of her “hip” and liberal university. Looking to make tenure and not wanting to ruffle any feathers, Cass is pushed by her community to lead a diversity day on her own behalf and is asked to be the face of her race. This world premiere play is a poignant and surprisingly, funny look at race, friendship, and how in the pursuit of real change, “well intentions” are not always enough.
