Beschreibung

There is nothing. A white person. Can say to a black person. About Race . . . Race. Is the most incendiary topic in our history. And the moment it comes out, you cannot close the lid on that box.Sparks fly when three lawyers and a defendant clash over the issue of race and the American judicial system. As they prepare for a court case, they must face the fundamental questions that everyone fears to ask. What is race? What is guilt? What happens when the crimes of the past collide with the transgressions of the present?Drawing on one of the most highly-charged issues of American history, David Mamet forces us to confront deep-seated prejudices and barely-healed wounds in this unflinching examination of the lies we tell ourselves and the truths we unwillingly reveal to others.Race was first seen in New York at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on December 6, 2009, directed by David Mamet. It receives its UK premiere at the Hampstead Theatre on 23 May 2013.
