Apr 22: White Fragility (Reading)
Chicago Dramatists' Saturday Series: APRIL
Playwrights, theatre artists, and the general public convene in the Chicago Dramatists' theatre to witness the birth of a new work for the stage and to participate in its development by offering feedback to its playwright. The plays are always directed and rehearsed and are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a post-reading discussion.

Tim is a straight cis white male. And that’s the least of his problems. He’s the head of HR and has been tasked with creating a more progressive workplace. As social activist protests grow outside the corporation’s headquarters, Tim desperately tries to navigate modern identity politics without alienating or offending…everyone. White Fragility is a dark comedy about what it truly means to be privileged.
