In a Los Angeles sadomasochistic parlor, the dominatrix, Terri, and
her client, Mark, are clad in costumes which conceal their faces
and ethnicities. These elaborate disguises allow them to play out fantasies based
on racial stereotypes and sexual mythologies: she becomes an African-American
woman to his white liberal man; he transforms into an Asian-American and she to
a blond WASP, etc. Exchanging biting social observations laced with stinging
humor, they progress through their power games, exposing the arbitrariness of
racial mythology. All the while, however, they are haunted by a growing awareness that beneath their own masks, despite their own efforts, they may be moving to the most terrifying reality of all – true intimacy transcending the boundaries of race.        								
“… the author of M. BUTTERFLY proves to be a wry observer of contemporary mores.”
