How to Win a Race War


Things take a darkly hilarious turn with the highly-anticipated world premiere of Ian Allen’s How to Win a Race War. The three-part comic satire, replete with song-and-dance numbers, clocking in at 3 hours plus, is a parody of white supremacist “race war” fiction. Spanning more than 3 centuries of civilization, How to Win a Race War takes the audience on an epic journey from one end of the white supremacist bookcase to the other: from the fear of slave rebellions in the antebellum South, to the militant skinhead scene of 1990’s Boston, and waay beyond – into a liberal dystopian future packed with the sort of orchestrated chaos we are seeing from these dangerous groups today. Part satire, part exposé, and part horror show, How to Win a Race War is guaranteed to be an experience like no other.
