Synopsis: Set on a small college campus in Vermont, Spinning Into Butter explores the dangers of both racism and political correctness in America today. When one of the few African American students at liberal Belmont College begins receiving hate mail, the campus erupts, first with shock, then with mutual recrimination as faculty and students alike try to prove their own tolerance by condemning one another. As the administration sponsors public “race forums” and the students start their activist groups, Sarah Daniels, the Dean of Students, is forced to explore her own feelings of racism. Her self-examination leads to some surprising discoveries and painful insights, the consequences of which even she can’t predict. Characters: Sarah Daniels: 35-40, dean of students Ross Collins: 35-40, Art History professor Dean Catherine Kenney: 60 Dean Burton Strauss: 55, chair of Humanities Mr. Meyers: 50, a security guard Patrick Chibas: 19, a self-assured young man Greg Sullivan: 21, a senior Ages are negotiable.
