Named one of the best plays by Time magazine in 2000, Spinning Into Butter follows the saga surrounding racist vandalism at a quiet Vermont College. It falls to Sarah Daniels, Dean of Students, to resolve this unprecedented situation … or perhaps just to quiet the hype. Directed by Congo Square’s founding artistic director Derrick Sanders, this thought-provoking and engaging play by award-winning Northwestern faculty member Rebecca Gilman holds a mirror to modern America, forcing a deeper examination of identity and whether values are absolute or subject to circumstance.
