What starts off as a playful guys’ night full of trash talk, pranks and Chinese take-out soon takes a detour as the men find themselves questioning how they define themselves and their places in the world. This razor-sharp comedy riffs on the classic father-son drama, confronting the complexities of identity and hypocrisies of privilege. Find out why The New York Times called Lee “the most adventurous downtown playwright of her generation” when Straight White Men comes to Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre.
