A drama by David Mamet

Directed by Jennifer Kay Jeter

Multiple award-winning playwright/director David Mamet tackles America's most controversial topic in a provocative new tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations.

Sponsored in part by

Two lawyers find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with raping a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface. When controversial playwright David Mamet turns the spotlight on what we think but can't say, dangerous truths are revealed, and no punches are spared.

Content advisory: The play contains strong, adult language and situations.
