Running Time: Honky runs approximately 95 minutes with no intermission. The production features adult content, adult language, flashing lights, and some loud sounds.
When a young African American is shot for a pair of basketball shoes, sales triple among white teens. Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame for the violence, or are they just part of a smart, targeted marketing plan? Luckily, there’s a new pill for sale, guaranteed to cure racism. Taking a satiric look at the symbiotic relationship between bigotry and commercialism, Honky is a comedy about navigating the murky waters of race, rhetoric and athletic footwear.

PRESS REVIEWS
This sharply written, smartly performed Rogue Machine production deftly skewers PC platitudes and self-delusions on both sides of the black-white racial divide.… Gregg T. Daniel’s staging keeps it laugh-out-loud funny even when airing uncomfortable truths.

LA Times

[read the entire review here]
Under extraordinarily savvy direction by Gregg T. Daniel, no actor sets a foot wrong, confrontations crackle, and the rather ambitious scope of the play’s examination of its subject remains clear and precise.
