The Shit Show: An American Allegory
No Peeking Theatre Presents
The Shit Show: An American Allegory
By Leelee Jackson

The Shit Show: An American Allegory is a postmodern reverse minstrelsy that explores layers of racism, not through the common stage rhetoric of negrophobia but through the dangers of negrophilia and common misconceptions of Blackness. This concept is manifested through a series of vignettes that intercut the narrative of the Does - a family from the planet Nah, whose assimilation to America is disrupted by encountering the Black neighbors from across the street.
