Inspired by the playwright's own experiences, The White Dress is a genderqueer coming-of-age play for the they/them generation. It follows Jonathan Howard, a biracial black and Filipinx gender nonconformist, as they navigate familial shaming & secrets, peer bullying, and the unrequited love of friend Winnie to redefine what male looks, sounds, and feels like. Directed and choreographed by Adin Walker, The White Dress features a music and movement score that accentuates Jonathan's odyssey to be free in their own skin.
After an acclaimed, sold-out workshop production in 2017 as part of the Araca Project, The White Dress returns to New York for its world premiere, coinciding with World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
