In one of the latest works by Pulitzer Prize-winning David Mamet (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross), two attorneys are charged with defending a white man accused of raping an African-American woman. In the face of unraveling evidence, the lawyers' own uncomfortable beliefs about race rise to the surface. Director John Dillon tackles Mamet's rat-a-tat language and sharp jabs in this confrontational comedy that skewers modern-day "polite" society. Race premiered on Broadway in 2009 starring James Spader and David Alan Grier. Learn More

Excellent comedy about a "real down to earth" family with intergeneration issues..you what I am talking about. I enjoyed the play with a friend; we laughed a lot and are still talking & laughing about it- even a few days later. I have told a few friends about it and hope they get a chance to see it.
This raucous comedy set in an Atlanta backyard picks up where we left off in Horizon's 2009 hit A Cool Drink A Water. Empty nesters Walt and Ruthie are throwing a homecoming party for son Trane, a rising hip hop star about to embark on his first American tour. But Walt and his buddies aren't just celebrating - they're hatching a plan to ride Trane's wave of success and recapture their own musical dreams. Then Trane drops in with a Korean pop surprise of his own! Bebop and hip-hop "take it to the woodshed," as the jazzmen say, to sharpen their music, friendship, and futures. A comic reuniting of generations and those who hunger to still have a place.
This show contains mature language and is not recommended for children.
