A PITTSBURGH PREMIERE PRODUCTION! November 7-9 & 14-16 at 7:30pm and November 10 & 17 at 4pm at the Father Ryan Arts Center in McKees Rocks. Tickets will cost $15 and are on sale now on the Cross-Stitch Theater Company website. Claudia Rankine's first published play, "The White Card", poses the essential question: Can American society progress if whiteness remains invisible? Composed of two scenes, the play opens with a dinner party thrown by Virginia and Charles, an influential Manhattan couple, for the up-and-coming artist Charlotte. Their conversation about art and representations of race spirals toward the devastation of Virginia and Charless intentions. One year later, the second scene brings Charlotte and Charles into the artists studio, and their confrontation raises both the stakes and the questions of what - and who - is actually on display. Rankine's The White Card is a moving and revelatory distillation of racial divisions as experienced in the white spaces of the living room, the art gallery, the theater, and the imagination itself. CONTENT ADVISORY: This show contains strong coarse language and covers themes of racism and violence, with specific reference to the murders of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. This content may not be appropriate for all audiences. Produced by Cross-Stitch Theater Company. Directed by Alyse M Hogan. Sponsored by Gemini Children's Theater. Featuring Dominique Briggs, Andy Privarnik, Kevin Mahler, Lisa Camerlo and Grant Jones.

Ages: 14+ (Strong coarse language)
