    We need more dystopian satires like this!! Dustin Chinn has written a hilarious and super smart play that will make white people uncomfortable but if they stick with it they will learn something and really be entertained.

    As the U.S. inches ever slowly toward the Minority Majority, “Snowflakes, or Rare White People” is a sandbox in which playwright Dustin Chinn digs beyond harmless white stereotypes and asks pressing questions: how do we as a culture currently view race, and how might that change in the future? What could a world untouched by western, Eurocentric ideals look like, and what does that world look like when it collides with those ideals for the first time? “Snowflakes…” dissects the very notion of a post-racial society.
