SIlverthorne Theater's World Premiere - White, Black & Blue
Walter, a black man, breaks into the home of Joe Renshaw, an older white man, late at night. Walter has fled the scene of an altercation with a white off-duty police officer, during which he took the officer?s gun. It is not the way it seems. As Joe and Walter struggle to establish a fragile détente, Officer Lou Rankin finds the house. It is not what it seems. A taut life and death stalemate ensues as the three desperate men strive to stay alive and to protect their families. Issues of race, trust, responsibility and last straws comprise the powerful themes in the story.
