ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents The Shipment. Playwright and director Young Jean Lee and a talented cast of five African-American performers create an unsettling terrain of well-trodden stereotypes that dare audiences to laugh as they consider their own preconceptions about race and culture. One of the leading and most provocative voices in American contemporary theatre, Lee pushes herself to new artistic heights as she confronts her fear about creating an ethnic identity play through the lens of a "black identity politics show."
