Straight White Men puts a revealing, often hilarious spotlight on straight white male identity, and is a subversive exploration of all our identities. The cast includes actor and LGBTQ+ activist Charlie Condou, and trans actress and activist Kim Tatum.

As a widower called Ed prepares to celebrate Christmas, he calls his three grown sons back to the family home. Games are played, Chinese food is ordered, and brotherly pranks and trashtalk distract them from the on-going issue that threatens to ruin the festivities: when identity matters and privilege is a problem, what is a straight white man to do?

Promising to be raucous, surprising and fearless—the ever-adventurous American playwright and director Young Jean Lee takes an outside look at the traditional father/son play narrative, shedding new light on a story we think we know all too well.

Following an acclaimed Broadway run, the hilarious Straight White Men arrives at Southwark Playhouse for four weeks only.

Charlie Condou (playing Matt) is a British actor, columnist and LGBTQ+ rights activist best known for playing Marcus Dent in Coronation Street and Ben Sherwood in Holby City. Simon Rouse (playing Ed) is best known for playing DCI Jack Meadows in The Bill. They are joined by Cary Crankson (Country Music), Alex Mugnaioni (Romeo & Juliet, National Theatre), Kamari Roméo (The Bear/The Proposal, Young Vic) andtrans actress and activist Kim Tatum (Killer Tongue).
