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

The show was well done and a lot of fun. We laughed out loud!!! It is amazing to see the caliber of local talent.
Totally enjoyable and would see it again. Theater was intimate and there is not a bad seat in the house. Kudos to Theater in the Square.
About the Ticket Supplier: Theatre in the SquareWhether it seems like eons or only yesterday since Sept. 10, 1982 when the Theatre opened with On Golden Pond, one thing is certain: A lot has happened in this little theater. First, there have been 24 world premieres -- 11 of them developed or commissioned by the Theatre -- and countless regional premieres. No small accomplishment. And the more than 215 widely diverse productions over the years have been memorable for their moments of challenge and laughter, heartbreak and joyfulness. Some have made even more than just a splash of daring and controversy. One notable production even became the lightning rod in a controversy that got the Theatre worldwide media attention. But, regardless of the subject matter quality has always been the emphasis. That emphasis paid off in a lot of ways -- patron loyalty, citations and honors (the Governor's Award for the Arts, for one) and a string of "Bests" in recognition from newspaper reviewers and civic organizations. With the 2006-07 season, Theatre in the Square celebrated its silver anniversary, and it is still growing (4,000 season subscribers), staging diverse works, and showcasing the best acting, writing and technical talent the region has to offer.
The purpose of Theatre in the Square is to carry on a tradition of live theater as an important art form, as well as to provide the opportunity to enjoy or participate in professional theater for all citizens of metro-Atlanta and northwest Georgia. Theatre in the Square not only enhances the quality of life within the community, but also pays performers, technicians, directors, designers, and writers, thereby encouraging local theater artists to stretch their imaginations, expand their skills, and develop original works.
Theatre in the Square participates in local, regional and national outlets for showcasing our work and our community (i.e., arts festivals, media coverage, touring shows). As a result, it continues to be an integral part of the community and region by offering quality work and encouraging new talent. Consequently, it generates works that will appeal on a national level in representing the character, history, and assets of our region.
