Sadly, it appears that race relations in the United States have changed little since playwright Rebecca Gilman’s controversial drama Spinning Into Butter debuted in Chicago in 1999. Almost a decade after its debut, Pink Banana Theatre Company presents the play at the Tenth Street Theatre on July 17. Kara Mulrooney plays Sarah Daniels, dean of students at Belmont College, a fictional liberal arts school in Vermont. Daniels is forced to deal with a series of hateful, racist notes being left for one of the school’s only black students.
