RPE presents "Honky" February 1-17 Fri-Sat 8 pm, Sun 2 pm
HONKY is a strongly worded, darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of race, rhetoric and basketball shoes.
When a young African American is shot for a pair of basketball shoes, sales triple among white teens. Are ghetto-glorifying commercials to blame, or is it the white CEO who only sees dollar signs? Luckily, there’s a new pill on the market guaranteed to cure racism. HONKY is a strongly worded, darkly comedic look at five people, white and black, as they navigate the murky waters of race, rhetoric and basketball shoes.
