About This Show

In Straight White Men, written and directed by Lee and co-commissioned by CTG, Lee offers a traditionally structured take on the classic American father-son drama. Ed and his three adult sons come together to celebrate Christmas. They enjoy cheerful trash-talking, pranks, and takeout Chinese, and find themselves confronting 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?
