About “Spinning into Butter:”
Belmont College is a small, seemingly idyllic New England school with progressive ideas. However, the campus community is rocked by random acts of racism that cause administrators, faculty, and students to consider their own prejudices and attitudes about race, politically correct language, identity, and community. The process for these characters is painful and surprising. Rebecca Gilman’s powerful play refuses to offer simple answers and conclusions. Instead, it asks “what if this was us?” For the audience, hope lies in our ability to speak to these issues in our own families, churches and communities.
