"What’s Happening at Berkeley Rep?" is an ongoing series of docent talks on current productions of the renowned Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
At these talks you’ll hear about the playwright’s perspective, dive into the historical context, and discover why the script is relevant right now. The 45 minute presentation includes time for questions.
In October we’ll be discussing White Noise by Suzan-Lori Parks.
About the play:
Leo, Dawn, Ralph, and Misha are old friends. The two 30-something couples are educated, progressive, and cosmopolitan. But when a racially motivated incident with the police leaves Leo shaken, he makes a radical proposition to Ralph that forever alters the relationship between these four friends—and their view of the world. Brave, intelligent, and eviscerating, White Noise by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the most talked about new plays tackling our rapidly unraveling social contract. Berkeley Rep is the only regional theatre outside New York to present White Noise this year.
The next talk in the series will be Becky Nurse of Salem, by Sarah Ruhl, on December 19.
