Joining the ranks of the over 100 ensemble theater pieces in this year's Hollywood Fringe Festival the new play White People Drinking by Daniel Sugimoto is one you should add to your must-see list. The premise of the play is simple: a billionaire and his wife have a dinner party and they've invited two millennial couples who have no idea what they're doing there, or what to expect. . .and it's not what you'd expect either. With such a simple premise White People Drinking packs a big punch—it's a 90-minute roller coaster ride whose destination is to be determined until the very end.
