Description

High atop a corporate office building, two men – one white, one black – seek harmony in their high-pressure world. When their simmering prejudices need venting, they resort to a corporate-approved ‘solution’ that lets them speak their minds in this hilariously dark comedy. Meanwhile, in a story inspired by real-life tragedy, a young writer imagines the long conversation between a dying white man who lies embedded in a car windshield and the black woman who is trying desperately not to let this distraction ruin her celebration of Flag Day. Second Wind Productions has been called “invigorating and exciting” by the San Francisco Examiner, “witty and compassionate” by the San Francisco Chronicle, and “small theatre at its best” by the Bay Guardian. Don’t miss this West Coast Premiere by Pulitzer Prize nominee, Lee Blessing.
