Tom Block's first play White Noise follows an African-American painter whose work is based on spiritual themes, as he travels to Detroit for an art exhibit of his work. At first calm, mature and erudite, Tim meets a seemingly normal cast of characters, who are volunteers with the church arts committee where Tim is to exhibit his paintings.
