F-ing White People

F-ing White People is about, at first glance, exactly what it’s title suggests. It’s a play about white people (even though there’s an African American character). f-ing-white-people-cast

Doug and Denise are young, liberal, and very successful. They play Cards Against Humanity, drink microbrews and the proper wine, and live in a gentrified area of Detroit (in a home they are fixing up in a very environmentally conscious way). They care about the right things, support the right kinds of causes, and know the right kind of people.

Doug and Denise are hosting a small dinner party for a few of their like-minded friends when Doug’s childhood friendRyan unexpectedly drops by. Ryan causes havoc. He is loud, uncouth and more than a little drunk. He doesn’t fit in at all with the world Doug has carved out for himself. Ryan reveals secrets from Doug’s past, has everyone questioning their own beliefs, and pits characters against each other. With Ryan’s help, we discover that not everyone is quite who they appear to be — including Ryan — as he takes us on a journey with a very surprising conclusion.

F-ing White People is a dark comedy that explores themes such as friendship, betrayal and the duality of man. It also touches upon many social issues, including race, gentrification and, oh yeah, fucking white people.

Four grown siblings return home to attend the funeral of their mother, who has passed away after battling a lengthy illness. Not only must they deal with the grieving process, they must deal with their overbearing father, who continues to cast a huge shadow over all of them.

Patrick and Denny have both been estranged from their Dad for almost twenty years, for very different reasons. Denny has been a screw up his whole life. He is recently sober (again) and wants desperately to repair some of the damage he’s done in the past. Patrick, the golden boy, has only made one big mistake in his life (in his father’s eyes): being gay. He wants nothing more than to fulfill his obligations and get out-of-town. Stacey, the youngest sibling, has taken up the mantle from their mother of trying to hold the family together. Thrice-divorced Colleen has stayed closest to home (geographically) but wants badly to get away.

Their homecoming is turbulent; Dad doesn’t exactly greet them with open arms. How they deal with him, with the loss of their mother and with each other opens old wounds and creates new, unexpected feelings.
