About White Noise
“Racism is a virus. And we’ve all got it. Ok, some more than others, ok. The workings of the virus are getting more complicated and the rewards are getting more sophisticated.”
Leo, Dawn, Ralph, and Misha are old friends. The two 30-something couples are educated, progressive, and cosmopolitan. But when a racially motivated incident with the police leaves Leo shaken, he makes a radical proposition to Ralph that forever alters the relationship between these four friends—and their view of the world.
Brave, intelligent, and eviscerating, "White Noise" by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the most talked about new plays tackling our rapidly unraveling social contract. Berkeley Rep is proud to present the west coast premiere of this new work, making it the only regional theatre outside New York to present "White Noise" this year.
