One of the boldest voices in contemporary theater, playwright and director Young Jean Lee tackles the Black experience and African-American identity politics in her new play, THE SHIPMENT. For this work, Lee, a Korean American, challenged herself to create a “Black identity-politics show,” addressing social norms that she herself finds uncomfortable. The result is a provocative and eclectic work, which includes song, dance, stand-up comedy, sketches, and a short drama, performed by five talented actors who show off Lee’s acid wit and subversive style.
Running Time: 1 hour 30 min (no intermission), no late seating
