We Are Proud to Present
From Jackie Sibblies Drury's Obie-Winning Play. A presentation about the Herero of Namibia, formerly known as Southwest Africa, from the German Sudwestafrika, between the years 1884-1915. In association with the African-American Shakespeare Company.
In the rehearsal room, a performance piece on a little-known episode of early 20th century genocide in Namibia, Africa takes a jolting turn when the actors — three black and three white — tap into personal resentments and ingrained prejudices. Tensions mount as they expose more of themselves than they ever imagined, unleashing a spiral of conflict as actors unravel strands of history and realize the past is ever-present.
