David Mamet Broadway Hit, ‘Race’, comes to Portland
Ticket’s are available now for Portland’s Artists Repertory Theatre’s production of ‘Race’, March 6, 2012 – April 8, 2012. Visit www.artistsrep.org for more details.
Pulitzer Prize-winning Playwright & Academy Award-nominated writer, David Mamet brings us this play that confronts the issue of race. Two black lawyers and one white lawyer take on a case involving a white man accused of raping a black woman. Needless to say, this brings a lot of deep issues to the surface. Mamet manages to inject some humor into this incendiary topic – provocative humor, nonetheless.
