SHOW DESCRIPTION: We start our season funny, with Dustin Chinn's pointed, futuristic comedy Snowflakes, or Rare White People. In Nueva New York in the 23rd Century, a cadre of nearly-extinct white hipsters escape the museum exhibit in which they live, bringing a perilous level of Caucasity to the rest of society. We’re thrilled for a second opportunity to engage with Chinn's sly, hysterical commentary, which we first encountered in last year’s Play Lab.
