Torn Space Theater presents The Shipment by Young Jean Lee in a WNY Premiere. Director Dan Shanahan jumpstarts the 2016 Torn Space Theater season with the provocative contemporary play by acclaimed New York City experimental playwright Young Jean Lee.
The Shipment comes to Buffalo seven years after its first production in New York City. Drawing on a still potent and troubling legacy of minstrelsy and black stereotypes in this country’s entertainment history, Young Jean Lee collaborated with her African American cast to create a performance piece highlighting that America is still far from at ease with its racial disparity.
