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