Post-screening Q&A with Young Jean Lee and company

Written and directed by Young Jean Lee

“…a subversive, seriously funny new theater piece by the adventurous playwright Young Jean Lee” —The New York Times

Playwright and director Young Jean Lee and a talented cast of five African-American performers create an unsettling terrain of well-trodden stereotypes that dare audiences to laugh as they consider their own preconceptions about race and culture. One of the leading and most provocative voices in American contemporary theater, Lee pushes herself to new artistic heights as she confronts her fear about creating an ethnic identity play through the lens of a “black identity politics show.”

The Shipment was filmed by On the Boards (Seattle, WA) as part of OntheBoards.tv, a website offering contemporary performances for streaming and download.
