Event Description

A brash and bold new play for the holidays that explores male privilege with an anthropologist's curiosity and a razor-sharp wit.        

When Ed and his three adult sons come together for Christmas, they enjoy pranks, trash-talking, and takeout Chinese food -- until an existential crisis threatens to tear their happy family apart. In a world where identity matters and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man?
