About the show

Arizona Theater Company presents a dry comedy about drying out. More…

From the show:

Steven is on top of the world: he’s married, has good friends, and is steps away from his dream job running one of the hottest theaters in the country. He also happens to be an alcoholic spinning out of control. 

Follow his life from first sip to first love, critical hit to critical care, all the way to rock bottom, where he carves an unusual path to sobriety. The White Chip is a wry and wild theatrical journey to recovery.

See it if You want navel gazing from a non playwright working through his 'issues'

Don't see it if You've seen O'Neill or many playwrights who have something actually to say and share about self abuse.

"Tapper's energy and humor never flag as he guides us through Steven's years of drunken revelry followed by a long, soul-searing hangover. Even his darkest moments of bottoming out are handled with incisive wit -- and are all the more powerful for it."

"...directed with an earnest finesse by Sheryl Kaller who sometimes has difficulty keeping her three different performers in character, in terms of whom they represent. If one has difficulty following the many tangents, Kaller has to be held principally responsible for that."
