  3. Straight White Men

In the New York premiere of STRAIGHT WHITE MEN, unpredictable downtown writer/director Young Jean Lee presents a traditionally structured take on the classic American father-son drama. When Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas, they enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese. Then they confront a problem that even being a happy family can't solve: when identity matters, and privilege is problematic, what is the value of being a straight white man?
