Upcoming: World Premiere of WHITE NOISE by Suzan-Lori Parks at The Public
Following her critically-acclaimed trilogy FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS (PARTS 1, 2, AND 3), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog, In The Blood) returns with a world premiere play about race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract.
Hamilton Tony winner Daveed Diggs, Sheria Irving (Romeo and Juliet on Broadway), and Zoe Winters (recently seen Off-Broadway in Last Match) will play long-time friends and lovers Leo, Misha, and Dawn, respectively. Along with Ralph (yet to be cast), the four are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. When a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation
The Public’s Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis (Julius Caesar, Public Works Twelfth Night), directs this fierce new drama about what happens when the unspoken and the unspeakable come head-to-head.White Noise will begin performances March 5, 2019, for a run scheduled through April 14. Complete casting will be announced at a later date.
“Suzan-Lori Parks, our Master Writer Chair, has written extraordinary roles and we are blessed in extraordinary actors to play them,” said Eustis. “Sheria, Zoë, and Daveed are brilliant actors and the core of a great ensemble.”
