The Play's the Thing

When: Fri., May 16 2014

This is Not the Play delves into one of the 21st century’s most uncomfortable topics: racism. The play explores the issue of a black playwright attempting to write the roles of several white, semi-self-aware characters. Lines blur as the play tries to define the difference between American racism and the playwright’s own prejudices. Directed by Emily Ritger, the play is full of intense humor built on this uniquely post-modern conflict. The show runs through May 31 in Cleveland Public Theatre’s James Levin Theatre. Tonight’s performance takes place at 7 p.m. and tickets are $12 to $28. (Patrick Stoops)
