Straight White Men

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? The play’s 2018 production at the Hayes Theater made Lee the first Asian American woman to have a play produced on Broadway. 

Directed by Rebecca Strum; Starring Andrew Ritter, Andrew Cassel, Gary Smith, and Johnny Viel.



Provocative, relevant, intelligent New York Theatre in Middlebury.

Several times each season, we share the bold, clever work of some of the most dynamic young playwrights to hit the New York scene in the last 5 to 10 years. The plays we pick have enjoyed a successful run in a boundary-pushing Off-Broadway theater. Each play speaks to our contemporary moment. 

The Series is curated and directed by Becky Strum, who has a distinguished history of directing and teaching theater in the New York Metro area.  Each play will be rehearsed and performed by Vermont’s finest actors.

All play readings will be on Sundays at 4pm. Admission is free, donations encouraged.
