White Noise by Taran Kootenhayoo

White Noise, a curious comedy by Taran J. Kootenhayoo

This workshop production is produced by Savage Society.

When the Mannings notice that new neighbours have moved in next to their Point Grey home, they invite them over for dinner. Drama and comedy ensue as a Denesuline & Nakoda Sioux family try to find common ground with the yoga/ corporate Point Grey family, the Mannings. Tensions rise as internalized racism surfaces. White Noise poses the question, how do we deal with internalized racism? Do we keep pushing it away and pretend to live safety in our day to day?
