THE WHITE BLACKS
By: Melanie Maria Goodreaux
Directed By: Melanie Maria Goodreaux

NOV 10 - DEC 2

JOHNSON THEATER

Melanie Maria Goodreaux’s play returns by popular demand. It addresses the complicated racial distinctions that plague one New Orleans family with a line of lighter skinned African-Americans that “pass for white.” They “pretend” to be white to reap the benefits that come with ‘whiteness’ but at what cost? Love lives long in New Orleans, and here romance, family secrets, and generational curses get all mixed up in Alva’s gumbo!
