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

First time at Wooly Mamouth (since I moved here in Sept 2012). "Detroit" was mostly funny, poignant and a bit shocking as two couples bonded in neighborly friendship to design new lives, despite the after-effects of the recession and addiction... I was awed by the set and special effects, as well as delighted with the great acting.. I will definitely be back!

Great production and fine performances but to no avail. What a depressing, rotten play. I felt nothing for any of the characters and isn't that what a theater experience is supposed to provide? I do not understand Wooly's play choices...
