thm_Race_ImageRace is a suspense story from playwright David Mamet that the Chicago Tribune called “intellectually salacious.” The story: 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. They soon find themselves in the middle of a complex case where blatant prejudice is as disturbing as the evidence at hand. A perfect fit for True Colors Theatre Company. John Dillon, who has directed at Georgia Shakespeare, across the country and in England, Russia, Egypt and Japan, leads a cast featuring Andrew Benator, Neal Ghant, Tiffany Hobbs and Ric Reitz. Note: It’s Mamet, so of course it contains adult language. True Colors performs Race at the Southwest Arts Center, 915 New Hope Road S.W.
