Sommaire
THE SHIPMENT : The Shipment is a provocative look at African-American identity in today's not-quite post-racial society. Not afraid to tackle thorny issues of race and religion, Young Jean Lee is New York’s most adventurous downtown playwright. She began by setting herself the most uncomfortable challenge she could imagine: to make, as a Korean-American, a work about African-American identity and politics. Developed in collaboration with an all-black cast, this biting satire invites audiences on a rollercoaster ride through the assumptions, clichés and distortions that arise when exploring the experience of African-Americans today. Cultural caricatures, from a foul-mouthed comedian to a drug dealer-turned-rapper superstar, are parodied in a series of variety numbers reminiscent of a minstrel show.
 
LEAR : Young Jean Lee's Lear is an alternative re-working of Shakespeare's celebrated tragedy, focusing on the king's three daughters.
