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

I thought the play was very good. The writer could have been a bit more economical with some of the script, but overall the writing was very good and very funny while dealing with a difficult subject. I especially liked the way the situation was portrayed on several social levels. Ms. Donna Biscoe was outstanding as Mrs. Price and Joy Brunson has the voice of an angel. A great way to spend a Saturday evening.
