Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company presents ‘Race’
|True Colors strives to be an important voice in the American discussion of diversity including plays and playwrights from various times, cultures and perspectives.|
“Race” will run Feb. 25 through March 23 at Fulton County's Southwest Arts Center located at 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta.
Two high-profile lawyers—one black, one white—are called to defend a wealthy white client charged with the rape of an African American woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface. They quickly find themselves embroiled in a complex case where blatant prejudice is as disturbing as the evidence at hand.
In the newest work by the Pulitzer Prize winning author of “American Buffalo” and “GlenGarry Glen Ross,” Mamet leaves nothing unsaid in this no-holds-barred suspense story the Chicago Tribune dubbed “intellectually salacious.”
The cast includes Andrew Benator, Neal Ghant, Tiffany Hobbs and Ric Reitz. Tickets are $15 -$50 and more information can be found at http://www.truecolorstheatre.org.
“Race” is on stage Feb. 25—March 23. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. There is a weekday matinee March 5 at 11 a.m.
