The Public Theater has announced another extension for White Noise written by Public Theater Master Writer Chair and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks. Oskar Eustis directs the drama, which began performances on March 5 in the Public's Anspacher Theater and will now run an addition two weeks through May 5. An official press opening is set for March 20.

Following her critically-acclaimed trilogy Father Comes Home From The Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, In the Blood) returns with a world premiere play about race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract. Long-time friends and lovers Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation.

The cast of White Noise features Daveed Diggs (Leo), Sheria Irving (Misha), Thomas Sadoski (Ralph), and Zoë Winters (Dawn).

The creative team includes scenic design by Clint Ramos, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Xavier Pierce, sound design by Dan Moses Schreier, and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon.
