Rebroadcast: WHITE – James Ijames

Buffer

On today’s podcast, on a beautiful night in Old City, I caught up with James Ijames, whose star is shining so brightly right now with his latest production of WHITE, onstage at Theatre Horizon. We talk about the production’s journey and what motivates him to create the work he does. Stay Tuned.

ABOUT WHITE

Gus is an artist. He’s just not a famousartist. So when a major art museum puts out a call for “new perspectives,” Gus—a white man—decides to seize his opportunity. He hires a black actress to present his work as her own, but as the actress gets more deeply into her role, Gus’s scheme spirals out of his control. Award-winning Philadelphia playwright James Ijames challenges assumptions about race, gender, identity and art in this seriously funny new comedy.
