The Shipment

Playwright Young Jean Lee
Performance Dates

Staged through a series of theatrical vignettes, The Shipment is in an irreverent look at African-American identity, challenging stereotypes in a not yet post-racial society. Using a veil of humor including politically-charged standup, sketch, short drama, music, and movement, director Young Jean Lee confronts that which makes her most uncomfortable and shines a subversive, engaging light on the racial filter through which we perceive the world.
