“intellectually salacious”—Chicago Tribune

 

 

 

 

Multiple award-winning playwright/director David Mamet's Race tackles America's most controversial topic in a provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. Two lawyers – one black, one white – and the firm's young associate scramble to decide if they want to represent a wealthy white man accused of the rape of a black woman. A true case of "he said, she said," Race questions what you thought, what you heard, and what you think you know. Race is the central theme, but the issues are more than skin deep as the redhot debate delves into questions of sex, gender equality and social class.
