The debut run of Claudia Rankine’s The White Card comes to HOME this week, a groundbreaking, eye-opening story of white privilege, cultural appropriation, and representation.

Hugely acclaimed Northern Stage Artistic Director Natalie Ibu is at the helm of the production. The plot follows a wealthy white couple who invite a talented black artist to dinner where tensions run high and a heated debate uncovers uncomfortable truths about race and privilege.

Rankine, the multi-award-winning author of six collections of poetry, explained the inspiration behind the story: “For me, The White Card is an invitation to have the difficult and necessary conversations about the discomfort we usually negotiate silently when it comes to race relations. The goal is not to get rid of the discomfort, but to increase the possibility for intimacy inside new narrative frameworks.”

We’ve even got two pairs of tickets to give away for Saturday’s evening show. All you have to do is fill in the form below to be in with a chance of winning.
