The White Card is a play that poses the question: can society progress when whiteness remains invisible?

Written during an increasingly racially divided America and before the murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests rippled across the globe, a wealthy, privileged white couple invite a talented Black artist to dinner.

Tensions run high and a heated debate uncovers some uncomfortable truths that can’t be ignored about white privilege, cultural appropriation, and representation.

NEED TO KNOW: The White Card is at the Soho Theatre from 21 Jun – 16 Jul.
