'Race' to open GSU theatre season


September 16, 2014

    The Theatre & Performance program at Georgia Southern University kicks off its season Sept. 24 with David Mamet’s Race; A Play in the Center for Art & Theatre’s Black Box Theatre.
    Race explores the tension between perception and intent when a law firm of three attorneys, two black and one white, defend a white man charged with a crime against a black woman. Thought-provoking and challenging, the play raises questions about how each of us perceives race in today’s world and will leave audiences with more questions than answers. The program will be including post-show discussions on Thursday, Sept. 25, and Wednesday,
Oct. 1, starting about 10 minutes after the performance.
    Theatre & Performance audiences will recognize actors Whitaker Gardner and Tatyana Arrington from last year’s production of Hamlet when they played opposite one another as Claudius and Gertrude. New to the Black Box stage are actors V. Akil Jackson and Harry Hudgins, who round out the cast. Student designers complete the production team with Lawrence Hancock as scenic designer and Loren “Zo” Haynes overseeing costumes and lighting design.
    Race; A Play opens Wednesday,
Sept. 24, and runs through Wednesday, Oct. 1. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee performance on Sunday,
Sept. 29, at 2 p.m. Running time is without intermission and approximately 75 minutes. The play is recommended for mature audiences because of language and content. Student and youth tickets are $5; faculty, staff and community tickets are $10. Call the Box Office at (912) 478-5379 to make reservations.
