About White Noise:

White Noise is a story about race, friendship, and our rapidly unraveling social contract. Long-time friends and lovers Leo, Misha, Ralph, and Dawn are educated, progressive, cosmopolitan, and woke. But when a racially motivated incident with the cops leaves Leo shaken, he decides extreme measures must be taken for self-preservation. This fierce new drama asks the question: what happens when the unspoken and the unspeakable come head-to-head?

Our White Noise Review

In White Noise, four characters take each other — and us — to task. Two Black, two White — two women, two men — they are ancient friends on the verge of becoming enduring enemies over issues each thought long settled. They are woke and arrogant inside that presumption.
