Let's see...David Mamet wrote a play called "Race," opening this Sunday, September 7 at 6:30, at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. I wonder if it's going to push anyone's buttons... Here's description of the play: "Mamet tackles America’s most controversial subject in this provocative tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. In “Race,” two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with sexually assaulting a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface." See for yourself -- and please report back in the comment section!
Directed by longtime Mamet collaborator Scott Zigler, “Race” features actors Chris Bauer (“True Blood,” “The Wire,” Broadway’s “A Streetcar Named Desire”), Dominic Hoffman (Mamet’s world premiere of “Faustus”), Jonno Roberts (Broadway’s “Take Me Out”) and DeWanda Wise (ABC’s “Firelight”).
The show runs through September 28.
