Description

By David Mamet

Directed By Tamara Fisch

When it comes to race is justice blind?

In this complex, complicated world acknowledging prejudice is an ugly venture into discomfort. In Race, three lawyers (two black, one white) take on a case that gets under the skin and turns into a minefield of deep divisions, resentments and bigotry. Mamet’s rapid-fire dialogue, gripping plot and blunt language, thoroughly stripped of polite social convention and rife with provocative humor, spotlights how discrimination is stained with guilt and shame. Playwright David Mamet is a Pulitzer Prize-winning and Academy Award-nominated writer.
