ABOUT THE PLAY: Kenny Leon and True Colors Theatre Company are proud to announce the upcoming Atlanta Premiere of David Mamet's Race directed by John Dillon. Race will run from February 25 - March 23, 2014 at Fulton County's Southwest Arts Center located at 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta, GA 30331.
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 that the Chicago Tribune dubbed "intellectually salacious." The Cast includes Andrew Benator, Neal Ghant, Tiffany Hobbs, and Ric Reitz.
