Go Beyond the Show!

Go Beyond the Show with a community conversation following Race. These discussions give audiences opportunities to discuss themes and subjects within a production with experts and community partners. They are free and open to the public and immediately follow a show.

How do we talk about race and the intersectionality of race, gender and power?:  A community conversation
Facilitated by Peggy Jones
Sunday, May 25 and Sunday, June 8 following the matinee productions of David Mamet’s play Race.
