Daniel Sugimoto's latest play, WHITE PEOPLE DRINKING, is all about those honest conversations during a dinner party with 3 very different couples, each of whom wind up speaking what is really on their minds after the free-flowing drinks loosen their tongues. All the topical taboo scenarios we fear on a silver platter are brought to light in fits of wit and whimsy, often so fast that you may feel your head is spinning trying to catch all the sarcasm as it flies past your ears.

I really loved this show! Yes, it’s controversial subject matter, but I’m my humble opinion, that is what theater is for! It pushes the boundaries! The creators and cast took an admirable risk! YES.

Funny. Poignant. Current. "White People Drinking" feels like a contemporary "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", perhaps with a splash of "Get Out."... full review
