Angry Black White Boy is based on Adam Mansbach's ruthlessly funny and scathing satire about the complexities of race and identity in America. Told through the eyes of Macon, a young, white man obsessed with righting the wrongs that have been levied against Black people throughout history, this vigilante story delves into his conflicted mind, psyche and guilt. The play explodes through Macon - a young man burdened by this nation's past and white privilege - as he studiously and compulsively sets out to rob his white taxi passengers in an attempt to somehow balance the scales. However, his robberies go tragically - and comically - haywire, pushing him to the forefront of a national debate. This theatrical 're-mix' for the stage incorporates text adapted and melded with original source material, freestyle and verse rap, live Hip Hop music, ballet and Hip Hop dance. Created with a hybridized style and approach, Angry Black White Boy combines theatrical storytelling with powerful, innovative and contemporary Hip Hop styles. The story of Macon, his conflicted mind and how he escapes or embraces his identity, is part of the complex journey - part satire, part scathing expose on contemporary American culture.

This exciting new project from Intersection's Hybrid Project is a mixture of history, mystery, music and theatrical mythmaking. By accessing and embracing Hip Hop elements and forms - verse, rap, dance, beatboxing and music - Angry Black White Boy will offer new inroads into expressing and exposing issues of propriety and legacy. The production unites Dan Wolf with his Felonious band-mate, Tommy Shepherd, as they purposefully explore and expand the boundaries of theatre and storytelling, crossing cultural, aesthetic and social borders by by merging growing Hip Hop styles and techniques in order to forge new performance language and styles.
