PRESENTED BY: Dan Allen Center for Social Justice

Set in Tulsa in 1996 — the 75th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre — “Shades of White” explores the relationships between an Israeli immigrant and a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and their wives. 

Narrow-minded Dr. Whitehill and his crone of a wife, Birdie, are set in their miserable ways until Dr. Whitehill encounters Yossi, an open-hearted musician who loves life. Uplifting, humorous and ultimately hopeful, "Shades of White" is a fast-paced serio-comedy that is relevant for our world today. The play’s themes, which include combating hate, prejudice and racism with unconditional love and paths to reconciliation, are in keeping with the Dan Allen Center’s mission "to promote social justice through education, outreach, advocacy and demonstration of social justice and caritas."
