Race Gets a Little Complicated in Mamet's Play Coming to TheaterWorks

When a rich white man is accused of raping a younger African-American woman, he looks to a multicultural law firm for his defense. But even as his attorneys - one of them white, another black - begin to strategize, they must confront their own biases and assumptions about race relations in America n David Mamet’s Race.


Tazewell Thompson, who staged TheaterWorks’ celebrated productions of Broke-ology, God of Carnage, and A Steady Rain, returns to direct this run June 3 through July 10 at City Arts on Pearl, 233 Pearl St., Hartford

The play, the fourth in the company’s 25th anniversary season, features Ward Duffy, Taneisha Duggan, Avery Glymph and Jack Koenig.

For tickets call 860-527-7838.
