Very well written and played! Not a slow moment throughout the play. ... full review
LAURA WILEY certified reviewer June 13, 2018
Witty, thought provoking, and entertaining! This play explores so many social dynamics and ideas, and has great pacing throughout. My favorite thing (aside from the brilliant writing) was the acting of Daniel Sugimoto and Julia Lisa, so so good. The conversation felt natural and everything just worked so well. Highly engaging from start to finish! ... full review

Sugimoto has crafted a modern-day dark comedy that is paced to perfection. The writing here is amalgamation of playwriting and screenwriting that settles into a nice balance of the two mediums putting all audiences in familiar territory. Additionally, the characters are written with realistic conviction—as these people talk on stage you can hear your friends, relatives, neighbors or even yourself speak. As part of the play’s main objective this ruckus dinner party hits upon a surplus of current political, social, religious, societal and controversial issues. Although none of these topics are necessarily fully addressed, but much like in the play, they are mentioned to spark a conversation and even allow you to confront your own beliefs. It m... full review

Great acting, well written, and highly uncomfortable. ... full review
The play really delved into what felt like ALL of the current political, religious, social, and familial topics with direct force and no meandering about it. It was funny and really made you think about your beliefs, er, well "opinions", on many topics. The cast did a great job with their energy and it was the perfect venue for this show. ... full review

'WPD' was a steady slurry of taboo topics, philosophy, pop culture, social media, and social commentary guised as a classic dinner party. I was amazed at how many different conversations were brought up during the duration of the play. Pair that with the rapid-fire dialogue and direction- making the play whizz by like a flick of a thumb on our instagram feed. Writer Dan Sugimoto is clearly a man who has a talent for analyzing the world around him and being able to articulate those sentiments through his dialogue and characters--who are as diverse as the topics discussed. I also have to mention how well rehearsed this play was. Every actor seemed to hit their timing, lines, and delivery with great success-even in moments of dual, somet... full review

The show is like a discourse/examination on societies' growing sense of ennui juxtaposed with the vagaries of a constantly evolving search for truth, wisdom and reality amidst the backdrop of a social gathering meant to exposed the very foibles of its inherent superficiality.... full review
SHARI BARRETT certified reviewer June 24, 2018
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. Imagine sitting down to dinner with friends, enjoying a few drinks and then really saying what is on your mind including secrets, opinions, and unfiltered drunk words. Would your friendships survive? Sugimoto’s philosophical, full tilt, façade-filled commentary leaves... full review

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. I think we need more of that! The writing is fantastic! The acting wonderful! The palpable tension and emotion in the theater throughout the show made it an experience I’ll remember and talk about for a long time. Thank you for creating this show! I’d really encourage the writer/creators of this show to submit this script for potential future productions.... full review
