About this show

Things take a darkly hilarious turn, with the highly anticipated world premiere of Ian Allen's How to Win a Race War. The three-part comic satire, replete with song-and-dance numbers, is a parody of white supremacist "race war" fiction, which has proliferated in the years since Timothy McVeigh named William Pierce's The Turner Diaries as inspiration for his brutal 1995 bombing of a federal building in Oklahoma City.

Spanning more than three centuries of civilization, How to Win a Race War, written and directed by Ian Allen, takes the audience on an epic journey from one end of the white supremacist bookcase to the other: from the fear of slave rebellions in the antebellum South, to the militant skinhead scene of 1990's Boston, and way beyond — into a liberal dystopian future packed with the sort of orchestrated chaos we are seeing from these dangerous groups today. Part satire, part exposé, and part horror show, How to Win a Race War is guaranteed to be an experience like no other.
