Turn Me Loose is Gretchen Law's intimate, no-holds-barred drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory, who spent his later years in the nation's capital. Turn Me Loose chronicles Gregory's rise as the first Black comedian to expose audiences to racial comedy; in confronting bigotry head-on with biting humor and charm, Gregory turned activism into an art form. "Scorchingly funny and brilliant" (The New York Times), Turn Me Loose, directed by John Gould Rubin, runs September 6-October 14, 2018 in the Kreeger Theater.

The creative team for Turn Me Loose includes Scenic Designer Christopher Barreca; Costume Designer Susan Hilferty; Lighting Designer Stephen Strawbridge; Sound Designer Leon Rothenberg; Casting Directors Jack Doulin and Victor Vazquez; Stage Manager Erin Cass and Assistant Stage Manager Christi B Spann.

Turn Me Loose is presented in association with John Legend, Get Lifted Film Company, Mike Jackson, The Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation, Beth Hubbard, The Private Theatre, Eric Falkenstein, SimonSays Entertainment, Jamie Cesa and Jana Babatunde-Bey.
