Terry Johnson Directs David Mamet's RACE, May 23-June 29
A hotel room in disarray - lamps broken, cigarette butts, liquor bottles - a red sequin dress, and a man accused of rape... The accused is white, the accuser black. Two lawyers, one black and one white, must uncover and sift the facts of the case. Is the man guilty? And, irrespective of that, can his case be won?
Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet's (Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna, American Buffalo, The Spanish Prisoner, The Untouchables and Speed-the-Plow) searing drama is a topical detective story about the perceptions and realities that colour our world - and the subtle shades between being a victim and being victimised.
Olivier award winner Terry Johnson returns to Hampstead Theatre following the sell-out hit Old Money last season. His other productions at Hampstead include The Memory of Water, Cracked and Dead Funny. He has directed numerous West End and Broadway favourites such as the Tony Award winning La Cage Aux Folles, One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and his stage adaptation of The Graduate.
