THE STORY: When a young African American is shot for a pair of basketball shoes, sales triple among white teens. Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame, or is it the white CEO that only sees dollar signs? Luckily, there’s a new pill on the market guaranteed to cure racism. HONKY is a darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of race, rhetoric and basketball shoes.
“Hilarious, irreverent, keeps you laughing from start to finish.” —NY Times. “Skillfully utilizes humor to extend the conversation about racism to the important theatre audience.” — “Kalleres’ sense of nonsense is sublime…doesn’t shy away from uncomfortable observations about race.” — “A thought-provoking satire that asks many questions and delivers as many answers.” —
