Eric Ting directs the environmental staging that will run through Dec. 2. Previews began Nov. 9.
Drury is a member of Soho Rep's 2011-12 Writer/Director Lab. The work had its world premiere at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater earlier this year. It is fully billed as We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915.
In the play, according to Soho Rep, "a troupe of American actors stumble over questions of authenticity and appropriation as they attempt to reconstruct the little-known first genocide of the 20th Century—and land in an exploration that hits closer to home."
We are Proud to Present a Presentation… features sets by Mimi Lien, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lights by Lenore Doxsee, sound by Chris Giarmo, projections by Jeff Larson and fight direction by J. David Brimmer.
