CVRep’s production of WHITE by James Ijames will run from January 23-February 17, 2019, with rehearsals starting the week of January 7.
Directed by Ron Celona
Seeking: Two men and two women, please see character breakdown. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
Gus is an artist. Vanessa is an actress. Gus wants to be presented in a major exhibition for artists of color, so he hired Vanessa to perform as Balkonae Townsend, a brash and political artist that will fit the museum’s desire for “new voices”. Everything is great, until Balkonae takes over and Gus has to deal with the mess he’s made. This plays spins out of control as it explores issues of race, gender, sexuality, and art.

TANNER – Gus’s Boyfriend. Asian male. Late 20’s – early 30’s.
VANESSA – The Actress. A Black woman. 20’s – 30’s , also St. DIANA OF DETROIT – A vision. Later BALKONAE TOWNSEND – An artist. (She should be charismatic and magnetic.)
