Snowflakes, or Rare White People

By Dustin Chinn

Directed by Mina Morita

April 24–May 3, 2020 

Due to campus closure, TDPS will present this production in an alternative online format. Ticket sales will resume when details of the format are announced.

In 23rd Century Nueva New York, the dwindling white American population is protected by the federal government. Two of the last are brought to the Museum of Natural History as a living exhibit in the Hall of Caucasian Peoples, only to be freed by a sympathetic gift shop employee. Is society ready for their return?

Inspired by the “Hall of Asian Peoples” at the American Museum of Natural History and articles bemoaning the "dwindling majority" of white Americans, Dustin Chinn’s cuttingly smart comedy explores American conceptions of race and ethnicity, representation, and the precarity of social status.
