Big Idea Theatre's THE SUBMISSION Comes to Capital Stage This Saturday

Big Idea Theatre's THE SUBMISSION by Jeff Talbott and directed by Jouni Kirjola plays Saturday, August 16 at 8pm. Tickets: $25 Regular; $20 Subscriber. BUY TICKETS.

Capital Stage brings our audiences a remount of this popular Big Idea Theatre production. Danny's complex new drama about an African-American family struggling to leave the projects has just been selected for the nation's preeminent play festival. But Danny, a young white, gay playwright, submitted his work under a pseudonym in the hope of increasing its chances for production. So he hires Emilie, a black actress, to stand in for him as author. What starts out as a questionable idea pulls Danny, Emilie, Danny's boyfriend, and his best friend down a path littered with truth, lies, revelation, and betrayal. This whip-smart, fearless and funny new play takes an unflinching look at the power of words and how far we'll go to get what we want. SN&R said, "Big Idea Theatre tackles this multilayered production with an impressive four-person cast."

Featuring Benjamin T. Ismail, Imani Mitchell, Eason Donner and Joshua Glenn Robertson.
