The plot of White is inspired by a true story. With a premise equal parts playful, prescient and preposterous, art imitates life (or is it the other way around?) in James Ijames’ comedy White. Gus is an artist. Vanessa is an actress. When a major museum seeks to showcase diverse voices in their next exhibition, Gus enlists Vanessa’s help to create an audacious new artistic persona to get him in the show. This contemporary Frankenstein story gleefully skewers the modern monstrosities of racism, misogyny and cultural appropriation, all the while subverting expectations, cracking wise, and opening eyes.
