In her razor-edged new satire, Young Jean Lee strips back modern stereotypes for a hilarious examination of the luckiest social group in history.

Christmas is for family, and brothers Matt, Jake and Drew gather at their widowed father’s house for the usual observances of the holiday season, adding a few rituals of their own, such as playing politically-correct board games. But between the brotherly trash talk and the Chinese take-out, they wonder if being a straight white male brings so much privilege, how come things are not working out?

Director Sarah Giles takes on this hotly anticipated New York hit for its Australian premiere, featuring Hamish Michael (Janet King), Gareth Reeves (Mary: The Making of a Princess), John Gaden (Other Desert Cities), Luke Ryan (Yellow Moon) and Candy Bowers (But Wait… There’s More, Circus Oz).

Please note: the role of Matt will now be played by Gareth Reeves
