the American Repertory Theater's Production of The White Card

Written by Claudia Rankine
Directed by Diane Paulus
Dramaturgy P. Carl

At a dinner party thrown by an influential Manhattan couple for an up-and-coming artist, questions arise about what—and who—is actually on display. Claudia Rankine's 2014 New York Times best-selling book, Citizen: An American Lyric, unpacked the insidious ways in which racism manifests itself in everyday situations. Now, this world-premiere play poses the question, "Can American society progress if whiteness stays invisible?"

The White Card will utilize non-traditional seating at the Emerson Paramount Center's Robert J. Orchard Stage. Patrons will be assigned specific seating locations at a later date.
