Acclaimed poet and playwright Claudia Rankine examines the nature of white male privilege in the powerful new play Help
. The Narrator recounts Rankine’s real-life conversations with white men that take place in transitional spaces like airports. As the stories unfold through monologues and staged scenarios, with Ruff supported by a cast of white male actors and dancers, Help
explores how these conversations can go right, wrong, or raise new questions.
