Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

FANTASTIC SHOW! This one could easily be a "must-see" for anyone who lives great suspenseful entertainment...but leave the kids at home since there is a bit of profanity. This is one of David Mamet's best pieces in a long, long time.

Fresh from a triumphant run on Broadway, David Mamet’s sly and searing legal comedy makes its West Coast debut at A.C.T. With his trademark verbal pyrotechnics, Mamet unleashes a thrilling power struggle as three attorneys scramble to represent a wealthy white man accused of assaulting a black woman. As alliances shift and battle lines are drawn, Race boldly confronts the most incendiary issues of our time, challenging our perceptions of justice: What is the truth, and who has the right to tell it?
