For WWSF’s 44th Meetup we had our first opportunity to see the work of FaultLine Theater, a 5 year old company with a mission to “amplify the voices of women, queer people, and people of color.”
How to Be a White Man, written by Luna Malbroux and Jennifer Lewis, follows one woman’s mission to rewrite the recipe for white male privilege so that everybody can get a piece of that pie. With lessons such as “The key to a great non-apology” and “Did you know you’re an expert?” How to Be a White Man gives you a generous helping of satire with a dash of cold, hard truth. Based on comedian Luna Malbroux’s experience as a queer Black woman combined with real interviews with folks all over the country, this all-new comedy takes a bold look at race, sexuality, and gender.
Female theater artists on the project include: Luna Malbroux (playwright/actor), Jennifer Lewis (playwright), Nikki Menez (director), Beth Hall (stage manager), Stephanie Wilborn (dramaturgy), Akaina Gosh (actor), Ashley Genarelli (actor), Jennifer Green (actor), Jessica Jones (actor), Linda Giron (actor), Sophia Craven (lights), Kitty Torres (costumes), Sara Witsch (sound), and Karen Loccisano (graphic design).
If you saw the show with the WWSF Meetup group or on your own, please leave a comment and let the artists know what you thought about the work!
