SYNOPSIS:

Dr. West, Pluto's leading Friendiologist, presents a program just for People of Colour (POC) to make friends and find happiness. His secret: become White! Janice, a lonely artist, enthusiastically enrolls and gets paired up with Mike. He's a super well-meaning guy. Observe as she navigates love, friendship and the fun times pretending not to be "ethnic."

Originally titled: Janice Lee and the White Supremacy Smackdown, Will You Be My Friend is a sharply funny and brutally honest musical comedy about the everyday challenges when loving white people. Written by and starring award-winning Korean-Canadian artist, Janice Jo Lee.

Through stories and fifteen original songs the award-winning performer challenges audiences to examine their privileges and reconsider the different ways we act in day-to-day life.

After premiering in Kitchener, ON to sold-out houses, Green Light Arts is bringing their hit show to Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace from Oct 25-Nov 11, 2018, thanks to the support of Theatre Passe Muraille who programmed it in their 2018-19 Season.
