Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet tackles America’s most controversial topic in a provocative new tale of sex, guilt and bold accusations. Two lawyers at the head of a racially integrated firm find themselves defending a wealthy white executive charged with assaulting a black woman. When a new legal assistant gets involved in the case, the opinions that boil beneath explode to the surface. When David Mamet turns the spotlight on what we think but can’t say, dangerous truths are revealed, and no punches are spared. Contains strong language and adult content. A Springfield area premiere.
