Spinning Into Butter archive"Like maybe you think you're really liberal so you decide to go into some field where you can help minority students. So you go to graduate school. But when you get there, you meet people who are a lot smarter than you, and also a lot more abrasive than you, and they point out that your desire to help minority students doesn't have anything to do with a sense of justice or fair play. Instead it stems from your 'plantation mentality'. Your paternalism. Your desire to help the noble savage." Rebecca Gilman's play probes latent racism in a white liberal institution. Supported by the American Friends of The Royal Court Theatre.
