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 took my parents to see this show and they enjoyed reliving the bittersweet memories of their own upbringing: the meager funds, the hard labor with helping on the farm, the richness of food and family, but mostly; the abundance of love. The same qualities that were expressed by Sam's book and portrayed by the actors. The screenwriter's adaptation was a bit dry and needed more humor but all-in-all, the show was a walk down a southern boys (or girls) memory lane.
