Belinda and Cody are a typical young American couple. Typical . . . except Cody is black and Belinda is white. All appears to be going well until she becomes attracted to a former classmate who is also white. As the men battle for her affections, the door is opened to a world of bigotry and betrayal that was apparently just below the surface all the time. In this gripping play, Neil LaBute, one of America’s most exciting new playwrights, throws political correctness out the window as he deals with racial prejudice in white and black America today. The play is also about truth and the many versions of it that we offer up to different people. The author writes a very funny script without allowing us to forget that we are watching a drama.
