WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

As Ed, a widower, prepares to celebrate Christmas, he calls his three grown sons back to the family home. Games are played, Chinese food is ordered, and brotherly pranks and trash talk distract them from the ongoing issue that threatens to ruin the festivities: When personal identity is essential and privilege is a problem, what is a straight white man to do? Playwright and director Young Jean Lee takes an outside look at the traditional father-son play narrative, shedding new light and hilarity on a story we think we know.
