Breakfasters: Playing the Dangerous Game of American Race Relations

A new American play Underground Railroad Game unpacks the whitewashed narrative that surrounds the American Civil War. Currently in season at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre, the play’s co-creators Jennifer Kidwell and Scott Sheppard join the Breakfasters. They share with us the darkly comic and often uncomfortable stories of growing up in a post-slavery America that can’t quite look its past square in the eye.
