About the show

"The Whites” takes us into a universe where the races are flipped and Whites are actually citizens of an ethnic underclass that is dominated by African-Americans.  More…

From the show:

We watch the Caucasian family of Harris and Rasheeda White contend with gun violence, school segregation and the aftermath of prison. For this family and their surrounding community, the everyday experiences of economic, political and social injustice are imposed by Blacks.

Cliched, Disappointing

See it if This play had a good premise, but unfortunately it turned out to be a dumpster fire. Poor acting and writing and direction.

Don't see it if The only good thing was the live bassist on stage playing music.

Unfortunately hypocritical!, Thought-provoking, Disappointing, Cliched, Clever

See it if U want to see a clever new way of telling the race conflict in America. It is the typical stereotype story with no new content.

Don't see it if U r tired of similar race themed plays or are uncomfortable with such discussions. U prefer light entertainment.

Also First, it is very clever to have race reversal where Blacks are played... Read more Read less

Kinda of knew where the story was headed, Cliched, Different, Entertaining, Clever

See it if If you what to see a different take in race

Don't see it if You Cringe seeing white people attempting to seem Black.

Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Absorbing

See it if A slice of life family story with a twist. Makes you think about things from a different prospective. Some humorous scenes

Don't see it if You don't want to see a show about race relations

Funny, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if It gives a slice of life of a black family (in a reverse world where whites are the underdogs). It uses humor to lighten the presentation.

Don't see it if It does not present a thorough or complete picture of discrimination in our country today, so you might learn little about the topic.

Dizzying, Clever, Absorbing

See it if You live shows dealing with social issues

Don't see it if If you don’t like new concepts in theater
