Danny has written a complex new drama about an African-American family trying to get out of the Projects, and it has just been selected for the nation's preeminent play festival. Problem is: Danny, a young white playwright, submitted the work under a pen name in the hope of increasing its chances for production. So he hires Emilie, a black actress, to stand in for him as author. What starts as a terrible idea becomes more and more terrible as Danny drags Emilie, his boyfriend, and his best friend down a long a dirty path of truth, lies, revelation and betrayal. A fiercely funny and intelligent new comic drama about the words we use to describe each other - and the things we'll do to get what we want.
The Submission stars Adam Hayes, Rick Lattimer, Shanntina Moore, and Michael Seitz. Stage management by Jessica K. Rasp.
Direction by Lorna C. Hill.
