Actor-playwright Talbott, whose own race-based dramatic comedy The Submission premiered Off-Broadway this season, plays litigator Jack Lawson. Omari portrays fellow litigator Henry Brown, with Wilson as their prospective client and Martinson as Susan, a young lawyer.
Here's how the Rep bills Race: "Shame, guilt, class, lies and sex all explode to the surface in Pulitzer Prize-winner David Mamet’s newest play where cases — and people — are never just black and white. When high-profile attorneys Jack Lawson and Henry Brown find themselves defending a privileged white executive accused of raping a young black woman, facts quickly become secondary to underlying agendas. Along with their new paralegal, Susan, the two men review the facts of the case and begin finding out more than they bargained for, both about the job and themselves. Race poses blunt questions with provocative language that will leave everyone talking long after the lights go down."
Here's a look at the production:
