According to The Brandeis Hoot, “Buyer Beware” “deals with the modern atmosphere of college protest movements” and its plot revolves around a white Brandeis student named Ron who plans to perform a stand-up routine on campus “in the style of Lenny Bruce.” Bruce was a famous 20th-century comedian and satirist known for his provocative style and use of obscenities.
The private university announced recently that it had cancelled plans to present the play “Buyer Beware” on its campus after students and
alumni complained the production “seeks to vilify” black voices and
issued concerns because its script includes a white protagonist who uses
the n-word as part of a comedy routine.
Complaints over its content have pushed the play off campus, with an
alumnus calling the play “overtly racist” and an outspoken student
saying it elevated “the already privileged voice of a white man on the
matter of Black Lives Matter protests.”
"How dare you have a play we don't approve of!", etc.
