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

Once again Actor's Express has produced an outstanding, provocative and edgy new play direct from Broadway. It's funny, erotic and thought-provoking. Nothing is simple or predictable in this play. Veronika Duerr is remarkable as she switches from the outspoken, earthy Vanda to the sensual Vanda in the play. Adam Fristoe gives us an amazing, artfully crafted and nuanced performance as the playwright and potential lover. I highly recommend this play for those who love complex and disturbing plays.
