The NOLA Project theatre company invites you inside the New Orleans Museum of Art
for a contemporary Frankenstein story set in the fiercely competitive art world.
Gus is an ambitious artist with his sights set on a major exhibition. Unfortunately, he doesn’t quite fulfill the museum’s desire for “different voices.” With the aid of actor Vanessa, Gus creates the brash Balkonaé Townsend persona. All goes to plan until Balkonaé takes control and Gus must face his creation head-on to ridiculous results.
WHITE, written by 2022 Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner James Ijames, was developed at PlayPenn New Play Conference and received its world premiere at Theatre Horizon (Pennsylvania) in 2017. Universities and regional theatres have mounted sold-out showings of the Terrence McNally New Play Award winner as recently as 2021 – the March 2023 production marks the one-act comedy’s local debut.
