New York Times Critics’ Pick!

Written by Greg Kalleres. Directed by Luke Harlan.

The New York Times Critics' Pick, HONKY, returns to Award-Winning Urban Stages Theatre for its 30th anniversary season.

A black teenager is shot for his “Sky Max” shoes. Sales triple among white teens. Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame or the CEO that only sees dollar signs? Either way, a new cure for racism promises to solve everything and advertises, “If you don’t think you need it, you’re probably a racist!” HONKY is a darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of advertising, race, romance and basketball shoes.

Starring Scott Barrow, Philip Callen, Dave Droxler, Danielle Faitelson, Anthony Gaskins, DeLance Minefee, Reynaldo Piniella and Arie Bianca Thompson
