The Laboratory Theater of Florida will present Race by David Mamet, opening April 30 and running through May 15.
The case is anything but black and white. Charles Strickland is a wealthy white businessman charged with assaulting a young black woman. He says they had a relationship. She says he raped her. Lawyers Jack and Henry must decide whether or not to take his case.
The simmering tensions continue to build until they threaten to engulf everyone. David Mamet turns the spotlight on what we think but can’t say, revealing dangerous truths and sparing no punches.
Artistic director Annette Trossbach says, “Pulitzer prize-winning playwright David Mamet gives us a provocative examination of guilt and prejudice in this compelling crime drama. Director Sonya McCarter has carefully guided our actors through a legal case that is a veritable minefield of simmering racial tension.”
