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

If you are sensitive to profanity, this may not be the play for you. On the other hand, this is a great story performed by some of Atlanta's top actors. It was 90 minutes of hopes and dreams, needs and desires, betrayals and surprises -- an emotional roller coaster ride. The characters were easy to like and I felt myself ultimately wanting the best for each of them. Great job, Freddie!
Playwright: Stephen Adly Guirgis

The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a high-octane rollercoaster centered on Veronica and Jackie, who have been in love since 8th grade. Jackie, out on parole, is newly sober. Veronica is anything but. When Jackie finds a mysteriously placed man’s hat in Veronica’s apartment, he suspects that she is having an affair – and the emotional cage match begins.
Introduce Jackie's A.A. Sponsor and his wife, along with Jackie’s hilariously fastidious cousin Julio, and you have what the New York Times called “a bruising, tragicomic apache dance of love, betrayal and indecision…by far the most accomplished and affecting work” from playwright Guirgis, whose other plays include Jesus Hopped the A Train and The Last Days of Judas Iscariot.
