The world premiere of Suzan-Lori Parks' White Noise, which will officially open at The Public Theater March 20, has extended a second time. The limited Off-Broadway run began March 5 and will now continue through May 5.
In White Noise, four long-time friends navigate a racially motivated incident with the cops that leaves one of them shaken. The new work, helmed by Artistic Director Oskar Eustis, looks at race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract.
White Noise was previously scheduled through April 21.
Parks returns to The Public following her critically acclaimed trilogy Father Comes Home From The Wars, Parts 1, 2, & 3. Her other plays include Topdog/Underdog, In The Blood, Fucking A, and The Death of The Last Black Man In The Whole Entire World aka The Negro Book Of The Dead.
Parks is the author of the novel Getting Mother’s Body and the writer of the screenplays for Girl 6; Their Eyes Were Watching God; and Anemone Me. She has penned the screenplays for the films, currently in production, The United States vs. Billie Holiday and an adaptation of Richard Wright’s Native Son.
