Powerful ‘Shipment’ uses stereotypes to challenge assumptions
Young Jean Lee’s powerful and powerfully intimate play “The Shipment” is packed with angles, anger and comedic observation – so packed that it requires a nimble cast to deliver on its promise of meaningful provocation.
Torn Space Theater and director Dan Shanahan found that cast. Together, Peter Johnson, Dudney Joseph, Greg Howze, Danica Riddick and Shabar Rouse expand the racial stereotypes that Lee challenges until they explode. Choreography is by Alexia Buono.

The film was inspired from conversations about the “Whiteness Project” which is a similar documentary discussing race and the loss of white privilege from white Americans. The main purpose of the film (TBP) is to bridge the gap between white and black Americans with in depth interviews on race.
