Lynch PLAY begins when a historical drama playing in the East Village is interrupted by a minstrel in blackface named Willie D. He decides to impose himself as narrator for the interrupted play, much to the actors' chagrin, and provide his own colorful interpretation of America's racial history. Both Blacks and Whites are held up for laughs and dissection in Willie D's impromptu narrative while the bewildered actors try their professional best to have the show go on, despite the antics of the black clown.
"Why segregated seating?" says Lynch PLAY director Jaime Robert Carrillo, "Dividing the audience is a manifestation of the unresolved racial divide in today's society. Inside of this racial divide there exists fear, stereotyping, guilt, and anger all wrapped up in silence."
