After an impulsive, social‐media driven, revolution upends inequality in America, two young women try to navigate the unforeseen challenges that come with driving out the “powers‐that‐be”, when they are swiftly thrust into newly-acquired roles as leaders. As they recognize the ability to compel people to adhere to their own brand of social justice they start to investigate just what else it is they can do.

Every Christmas, Ed and his three sons get together, eat Chinese takeout, and unleash well-worn inside jokes while reminiscing about their unusual childhood. But this holiday season they are forced to consider a pivotal cultural reality underneath their constructed lives. Part deeply comedic social artifact, part emotional time-bomb, all framed in the context of a typical "living room" drama, Lee’s funny and moving play ultimately poses this tantalizing question: What does it mean to do the “right thing” as a straight white man?
