Play preview: “Straight White Men” examines privilege in modern society

From the April 10, 2014 edition

A young rising star of New York’s downtown theater world, experimental playwright Young Jean Lee really challenged herself with “Straight White Men,” which she wrote and directed.

The play follows a conventional theatrical format and portrays a weekend in the life of four straight white men.

The result is a profound look at privilege and self-evaluation in modern society.
