In the fast-paced, funny and fully-titled We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915, a sextet of idealistic actors -- three white and three black -- come together to rehearse a play about the first genocide of the 20th century. But when their re-creation starts to hit a little too close to home, hidden biases begin to bubble to the surface, with results that are both darkly comic and frankly chilling. Michael John Garces directs Jackie Sibblies Drury's play for Woolly Mammoth. Learn More

I thoroughly enjoyed this but I am an admitted Simpsons fanatic and am especially fond of the episode the play centers around--Cape Feare. However, I am not sure exactly how much a non-Simpsons fan would get out of it. The acting was top notch. One complaint about the play is that I wanted to know "what the hell" happened exactly but that's my same complaint with "The Walking Dead." However, that did not deter my enjoyment of the show. Again, for Simpsons fanatics this is a must-see. Everyone else? Your life is already a failure so it's up to you...
