Following her critically-acclaimed trilogy “Father Comes Home From The Wars” (Parts 1, 2 & 3), Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks returns with the world premiere of “White Noise,” a play about race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract. Long-time friends and lovers Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation. The Public’s Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis, directs this fierce new drama about what happens when the unspoken and the unspeakable come head-to-head.
