…vivid imagery, earnest performance, and retrospective conversation…

-Ben Kaye, NewCity Stage

“Mr. Kotomoto Is Definitely Not White”

now playing at strawdog Theatre

As Mr. Kotomoto's Teas expands to selling dreams, a manager’s offensive email forces three employees to navigate their compromised morals and changing friendships. This play examines the tenuous relationships between workers and management in the often unchanging game of capitalism.

Tickets are on sale now.
