A gripping, no-holds-barred courtroom drama
Fresh from Broadway, this high-voltage drama tackles the most incendiary topic of our time. Three attorneys, two black and one white, are called on to represent a wealthy white man charged with assaulting a young black woman. With the palpable tension of a fierce cross-examination and no shortage of wry humor, Race fearlessly challenges our perceptions of race, guilt, justice, and truth.

"As my 15 year old daughter would say, OMG you have got to see this play!!!! I have been attending performances at the OST for over 10 years ever since I've lived in Orlando and I can honestly say that Race by David Mamet is one of my top three favorite performances I have seen at the theater EVER! It is truly a must see!" - Dean B.
